Memphis outfit Doter Sweetly shares official video for their single “Baby Boy” and we can only say… keep them coming!

Doter Sweetly – Baby Boy
Directed by Peter Phillips

Memphis based Doter Sweetly has shared their first official music video for the song Baby Boy. A dreamy song “about that early-mid-late-20s going nowhere type of dread that we all seem to be going through at the moment”. For anyone at that stage of their lives the song is quite poignant and goes straight to the point.

“Seldom dreaming and peachy sweet and full of laughter
No need to plug up that hole in your heart
Shouldn’t we be complete like stony roman figures?
Silent, immortal, unchanged by the sun”

Main songwriter Elijah Poston continues, “recognising and realising that even though your life seems to be moving nowhere, your life is simultaneously wonderful and precious.”

The song was written, as he points out, after a particularly hard 7-day-a-week work month and goes on about “the difficulty of understanding that the life you want to lead is not ahead of you, but is right where you are”.

So many people can relate with the feeling of finding yourself in a different place from what you wanted, had planned or simply wished for. That doesn’t mean we need to give up or let it go. This lo-fi gem express the essence of this feeling and also gives us hope telling us not to give up and actually realise that our life is best lived in the present.

The video can be considered 100% independent and produced with the help of friends and coworkers between Memphis and New Orleans. Brings a dreamy visualisation of an equally dreamy track, with the so-called “industry standards” calling for short videos of radio edits of the track, this 6 and half minute video keeps you interested and glued to the screen with both eyes and ears with its minimalistic, unpretentious look and beautiful light show.

We are very happy to have discovered Doter Sweetly and look forward to hear what they have been working on in the last few months. We also recommend you to check out their previous albums, the debut “Songs for a Recent Lover” and the brilliant follow up “Granpa Grew Trees”.

Seldom dreaming and peachy sweet and full of laughter
No need to plug up that hole in your heart
Shouldn’t we be complete like stony roman figures?
Silent, immortal, unchanged by the sun

Some share of fun on a cracked back balcony
Some far of dream about how it is and how it should be

Or you could shower me in everything that’s good
you could share a little love

Baby boy you’ve been in a rut
I could see it from a mile away
A little too much of that green regular life type of stuff
Sums it up
Darling crude indigo eye you have it all too

Seldom dreaming and peachy sweet
Until i found my dream
