Video Premiere: Gabriel Douglas “Hearts Want”

The visual for ‘Hearts Want’ is all about travelling through a variety of different landscapes and it complements the song’s emotional journey well.  Gabriel Douglas’s slow, sonorous vocal over a steady guitar strum is simple yet atmospheric and absorbingly intimate.  The feeling of  emotional rawness when Douglas sings: “Hearts want // Hearts change // Hard to explain,” is direct and powerful.  The Minneapolis singer-songwriter’s striking, distinctive voice is authentic.

This is the first song from ‘Darker Still’, the brand new album out on 21st December.  As the names suggests, Douglas has produced a record full of moody narratives and soulful darkness.  Through his experiences as a solo artist and in bands like 4onthefloor, a stomping rock group, Douglas pulls together an engaging blend of genres, including elements of blues, rock, soul and Americana.  Expect the album to be full of surprises.  ‘Hearts Want’, our video premiere for today, is one of the album’s highlights.  Enjoy.
