Connie Constance wishes love could last forever in honest clip for Yesterday
The open and honest single/video is the first release from the UK songwriter since her 2017 EP Boring Connie.
There's a really beautiful wave of R&B coming out of the UK at the moment, with acts like Jorja Smith, Nao, RAYE and Tirzah all being highlights of the past twelve months thanks to their oozing, emotive-driven approach to the genre's already quite moving feel. In line with other up-and-comers such as the recently-featured Jareth, Connie Constance is putting her own twist on English R&B - something she went out to demonstrate on her 2015 debut EP In The Grass and then cement and celebrate on her 2017 EP Boring Connie. Released earlier this year, her latest single, Yesterday, moved to a similar beat, uniting Constance's dreamy and pillow-soft vocal with a stripped-back beat that perfectly pinpointed the emotive draw to her vocals and amplified it, giving the single that really heart-tinged feel. It works well with Connie Constance's approach to music too, with the single's honest and open feeling matching the honestly Constance puts into her lyrics - like on Yesterday, for example, that tells a story of timeless love that eventually, turns sour.
"The song is mainly about those beautiful moments of freedom you experience in love and wishing these feelings could last forever," she says on the single, which sees the London-based musician cement her place amongst the country's quickly overflowing R&B scene. "But sadly things don’t always go to plan even if all the right components are there. I wanted to tell a story of ill-fated love, which I have experienced and connected to completely." The single's official video clip backs the theme Constance explores on the track, visually highlighting a love story that eventually ends sour, with the couple separated.
Off the back of a consistent run of singles and EPs, Yesterday is the latest piece of Connie Constance's rise, and if you're yet to be acquainted with the rising UK up-start, there's no better time than now. Check out the video for Yesterday below.
