Following her Coconuts video, Anna Wise returns with a self-directed video for Balance In All off of her The Feminine: Act II EP.
Having grown up close to the vast oceans and lush forests, Wise dedicates the song to her time spent living in Northern California. With rich soulful vibes, Wise wanders through a variety of beautiful settings. She detailed her love and experiences with nature, explaining:
“I grew up in Northern California close to what I call the ocean forest. My family would often visit Muir Woods. There are trees so big there you can’t wrap your arms around them. On these family trips I’d sneak off into a private corner of nature and sing to the Redwoods. I felt completely isolated in my private nature nook, although my mom always had an eye on me. I fell in love with the dense green and became acquainted with silence. I’d lie still and watch nature reveal itself to me. The faint smell of salt water reminded me the Pacific Ocean was just beyond the foliage curtain. It wasn’t until I moved to Brooklyn that I realized I grew up in one of the most beautiful places on earth, and I began to miss it terribly. Recently, I had a chance to return home. I felt drawn to document where I first felt wild and free as a child. ‘Balance In All’ is a tribute to the ecstatic healing powers of nature, the natural anti-depressant of fresh air and bird songs, and the cleansing power of the ocean.”
