Toronto musician Georgia Harmer has shared a video for her new single, “Top Down.”
The track comes from her upcoming debut album, Stay In Touch, out April 22nd via Arts & Crafts. “Top Down” is a cathartic tune that is perfect for a drive down the open road. Lyrically, Harmer sings of feeling insignificant atop driven percussion and gritty guitars. The accompanying self-directed retro video for the tune follows Harmer as she wanders through a closed down theme park on Toronto Island.
“‘Top Down’ is about feeling frustrated by my own powerlessness,” Harmer explains. “It’s about feeling very young and small, and not being able to control or change anything happening around me, in my personal life, and in the bigger picture. I was trying to help a friend out of a dark place, and struggling with my own type of dark place that goes along with coming of age and wondering – what exactly is my role in this big, sad, beautiful world?

Harmer says that the upcoming album, Stay In Touch, is about “staying in touch with the aspects of yourself, your life, the world, that keep you aware of what’s most important. Whether that’s people, relationships, deep feelings, the value of togetherness and support. It’s about finding the balance between holding on and letting go, between the beauty of the world and the pain in the world.”
