BAEBLE FIRST PLAY: 'Magic' by Hillary Capps (Video)

    There is something so literally magical about watching Zoë Blake dance to Hillary Capps' newest track "Magic," all glowy and lit up in a dark space. "There is magic in the dark," Capps sings over a bed of electric keyboards, her voice delicate enough to calm a hurricane.

    There's a soothing sense of faith in the song as well, which Capps expands on for us, "'Magic' is a song about having faith without a rulebook. It's about finding peace in not knowing the answers. With the video I wanted to play with themes of ephemerality, of loneliness and isolation, darkness and light, quiet and noise. Beyond music, dance is the art form I've always been most drawn to. Dance often harbors a very spiritual quality, and through the movement of a solo dancer (the amazing Zoë Blake) we are able to bring to light all of these concepts. 'There is magic in the dark.'"

    The video was shot by Gabriel Stanley and edited by Anthony Farina and you can purchase the track via Hillary Capps' BandCamp now.
