Merging indie warmth, folk eloquence, and alternative vision, Shannen James made her debut with Something in the Water during 2019. Not only did it garner the support of triple j and triple j unearthed, it also clocked 600K Spotify streams in a few months’ time. Additionally, she graced stages alongside G Flip and Jess Kent.
Collide is Shannen’s second single and it sounds so good. I like the powerful pop melodies. Besides, the vocals are out of this world. Furthermore, I am also a fan of the solid chorus and bright atmosphere!
The single is accompanied by a fantastic music video, directed by Marie Panguad. The sepia filters and film cigarette burns augment scenes of wistful summer road-tripping and carnival wonder.
Regarding Collide, Shannen commented, “It’s a song about connecting with someone who is exactly the polar opposite of you in every way. As the old saying goes, ‘Opposites attract’. There’s a common ground of love and an undeniable connection and attraction. Collide’is delivered as though it’s a romantic encounter. It can be related to all kinds of relationships in our lives. That’s the beauty of it. We all have people who drive us crazy, yet draw us into their worlds because they’re so different from our own. I want this song to be a reminder we can always find something in each other to connect with.”
