Photocomfort‘s “Roll” is an ode to platonic love

Boston artist extraordinaire Photocomfort has unveiled her single and music video “Roll”. The song offers the first taste from her forthcoming album set for release later next month. The album entitled Patron Saint, is a collection of platonic love songs, with Photocomfort giving an ode to those she holds dear.

“Roll” opens up with a magical synth and soon culminates into sweeping soundscapes filled with dreamy ethereal vocals. Photocomfort has a keen ear for melody, drawing listeners in with her infectious energy and emotional depth. The song rewards repeated listens, revealing new nuances and layers with each play. For instance, the listener can hear samples of shouts and laughter from her best friend, Anjimile.

The track thematically, discusses how important it is to love someone so truly that you can let them go. Sometimes friendships change and ebb and flow and with “Roll”, the artist shares this relatable theme. The song has been released with an irresistible yet simple music video. Photocomfort is seen in her apartment walking to a clone of herself, to where she decides to cut her hair. The video is described as a three minute thriller and it is an intriguing and unique storyline.

Photocomfort takes influence from the likes of Alanis Morissette, Dido, Joanna Newsom, Bjork, and Thom Yorke. Her own music stands as a testament to the power of artistic vision and musical innovation. Listeners who appreciate heartfelt lyrics, captivating vocals, and adventurous production will find much to admire.
