Texas dreampop band Semihelix shares video for “Recoil,” title track from LP

Austin, Texas — Culture Addicts has premiered the new video from Semihelix, the title track from their record.

“Recoil” by Austin, Texas based dreampop trio Semihelix, including Geannie Friedman -guitar and vocals, Kevin Martin- bass and Valdemar Barrera-drums, was produced and mixed by Matt Gerhard (Spoon, Future Islands, !!!) at The Hen House in Austin and mastered by Max Lorenzen (Shearwater, A.Sinclar, Spoon). Video artwork and production by Via Nuon.

The story behind the stop animation storyline involves the 1993 movie Ruby in Paradise, where Ashley Judd in the movie leaves in her car to pursue a new life. It coincides greatly with the story behind the song “Recoil.” The song has to do with resilience from going through a hard time and building yourself back up to heal and move on from the bad situation. 

It’s also about finding close friends who have your back and how important it is to show the people close to us gratitude. After being bullied in her life in various situations, Geannie speaks about the importance of being your own best advocate, having other people’s backs and reaching out to close friends when things get hard. 

In the lyrics, “I am going down, I am coming around,” it’s about how time heals all wounds and how we may feel down now, but things will turn around and get better. In the lyrics, “you are going down, you are coming around,” it’s about how we are not alone. We all struggle and we all get through tough times. The knowing we’re not alone makes it a bit easier to reach out to a friend when feeling down, we are never a burden. We help each other out, that’s what real friends are there for. We recoil from a dark place with our own support for ourselves and the support of others.
