Eliot – “Where Are You” feat. Phoebe Bridgers
Tomorrow afternoon, Eliot and Phoebe Bridges, both of L.A.’s elusive 6BIT Collective, will perform a very special set together at our debut Los Angeles Traveling Showcase. Until then, check out a brand new track from the duo called “Where Are You.” Here’s what Eliot, Phoebe Bridges, and Leonardo Lawrence (cover art) had to say about it:
“Where Are You” was produced over a long period of time. There have been many changes since Phoebe and I started production on the song; changes in time as well as changes in paths. The song has transformed over a long period of time, gathering influence from various junctures and developments.
I wrote “Where Are You” from the perspective of a woman who is trying to cope with her relationship with an unavailable person. The “other woman” is often antagonized, and I thought it would be interesting to look at a situation from her perspective. Eliot sent me the track with this title, and I took it as my prompt. I felt like the lyrics fit with the melancholy of the melody.
What I took from the track was a tragic sense of loss and complete dependence on another. Ultimately, I wanted the girl in the drawing to be drowning, literally, in her on misery and helplessness. The soothing sky in the background enhances this sense of loneliness, like there’s no one around her that can help. She’s all alone and it’s utterly terrifying.
