Fia Moon remains one of Ireland's most exciting pop musicians.
Irish singer-songwriter, Fia Moon has shared her official new music video for recently released single ‘Back To Me’.
The video was shot over the course of three days in Brighton by director Marcus Prouse Jr and editor Willow Kennedy. It features Moon and actor Jack Furssedonn-Coates, depicting a relationship with not only another but also with herself. "I wanted the video to communicate the depth of the song - the differences between light and dark, night and day" said Fia.
Portrayed is two lovers lost, one having lost their job, living out of a suitcase, and the demise of their once beautiful relationship. The travelling reflects the time in Fia's life where she was constantly moving homes over the course of 2 years and during Covid.
The video closes with a gorgeous sunset, signifying Moon’s freedom and being set free from the constraints of others. "I wanted the video to be free and earthy and almost wild towards the end to represent the freedom and coming back to myself that I felt during that period of time," she explained.
'Back To Me' finds Fia in her most empowering mood yet, leaving all the heartbreak and pain of the past behind to take on the world, her own way. It details the journey of losing yourself to a relationship, before coming out the other end and finding yourself in a more confident, self-assured place.
The inspiration for the track came from a feeling Fia had been fostering for quite some time, that her relationship was failing but a sense that a more confident, empowered version of herself would rise from its ashes. "I had this awareness that the old, strong, confident, empowered me was still there somewhere" Fia said.
'Back to Me' was written in collaboration with Rob Harvey and Dan Dare at Harvey’s home in Leeds in August of 2018. It was the first time Harvey and Fia had worked together, and acted as an important milestone for the pair, as they went on to write a number of Fia’s biggest tracks so far.
Fia Moon has amassed over 48 million impressions on Irish radio in the short time she has been releasing music. In 2020, she ascended to become the 4th most played independent female on Irish radio. Having established herself over the course of the pandemic as one of Ireland’s most vital artists, and with more new music this year, 2023 is gearing up to be a huge year for Fia and her deeply personal and highly relatable blend of atmospheric pop.
