New York-based musician Kinlaw dropped a Kathleen Dycaico-directed video for “Permissions” today. It’s the second single from her debut album The Tipping Scale, out on Jan. 22, 2021 via Bayonet Records.
Kinlaw elaborated on the song:
“I only allowed myself to write this track while I was moving forward physically. I turned it into a bit of a game; there are many mental games woven through all of the tracks, really, but this one has the most. I wrote ‘Permissions’ on a bus, in the back of a car, on a plane, and every lyric and melody was written while walking or running. I was in an extraordinary depression at that time and wanted to honor it, yet still, write something for a future that would hopefully feel different. It can sometimes be challenging for me to sing it. I like that about this one. The feelings are hard, the words are hard, it’s hard to sing, yet here we are, dancing together.”
