Tess Posner Releases a New Lyric Video for “Something Told Me” Along with a Little Magic

When caught up in the day to day grind that would be our lives sometimes, it is easy to forget the beauty of that which is around us. “Something Told Me” was inspired by the rebirth of beauty, wonder, and magic Tess Posner experienced while on a hike, venturing out for the first time after 6 months living in fear and isolation while in quarantine. The song revolves around reclaiming those things that were so enchanting to us as children, only to fade to distant memories as we grow older.

Tess is hoping, as we transition from the pandemic to a more normal life, that we can heal and rebuild, perhaps creating something more beautiful than before. Her video goes beyond a simple image or two with words scrolling about the screen – it encompasses symbolism – birds flying away, eyes peering, closing, and cages. There is a sense of confinement and a pursuit of being free. 

The music is as powerful as the words. I particularly liked how she was able to work trumpet into a poppier piece. It worked very well. True to the theme, this was indeed a creating of something new and better at a time when “normal was broken”. Check out the lyric video below and be sure to check out her site and social media.

Dave Pearson is based out of Richmond, VA by way of Hayward, WI. He has long had a passion for music. Growing up in rural Wisconsin, he rocked out to the likes of Barry Manilow, Neil Diamond, and The Lettermen. Then, one Saturday night, being the rebel he was born to be, he caught an Alice Cooper interview (it may have been on The Midnight Special) and saw him perform, “Welcome to My Nightmare”. Dave was hooked on Rock and Roll (and many other genres as well). Dave has enjoyed (amateur) photography to some degree most of his adult life. Recently Dave started to apply his event photography skills in various music settings with success. He finds that photographing a performance gives him a much greater appreciation for the artist.
