Indianapolis artist Whitney Coleman released a new video out into the airwaves last week. “Falling Hearts” was directed by local video guru Jeremy “Jace” Wallace. I have been excited about Coleman’s contribution to the Naptown music scene since I caught her short performance at this year’s Broad Ripple Music Fest on the patio at The Monkey’s Tale. Her live performance was energetic and captivating, with Coleman performing as much within the crowd as in front of it.
“Falling Hearts” clocks in at a mere two minutes, but accomplishes some astonishing emotional depth in such a short time frame. Read what Coleman had to say about the project:
“I wrote this song about 4 years ago, actually all instrumentation and sounds that I made from my computer in Garage Band. I was sitting on my couch recovering from an ACL injury on my knee (note: I used to play basketball for my college) and a break up as well with a guy I used to date. In my misery I came up with this song. It represents something new…something true…something real and that can, in a sense, represent “love” in a different light…in a desperate, vulnerable light, that makes you risk anything to have it and to experience it. The title and video “Falling Hearts” is just that. Taking the notion of “Falling Stars” and “Falling in love” and literally showing it with representation of two people meeting …even if things don’t go well…that’s just how I want to love…risking it all”
