Video Premiere: The epicness of Harley Mavis Magnolia FBi Radio

Harley Mavis stunning sophomore single joins the pantheon of great songs entitled Magnolia (see also: Gang of Youths; Playboi Carti).

The follow-up to the Sydney songwriters outstanding debut single, No Chance, opens with some evocatively strummed, faraway guitars and Harleys earthy vocals singing of how she needs to find [her] answers in tiny cities beneath these woodland streets.

But then, about halfway through, these atmospherics are overtaken by a bustling beat which breaks through and introduces a newfound sense of energy. From there, the song doesnt let go as a near-overwhelming rock-cophany floods the track. Its a masterclass in captivating songwriting, unfurling out from the centre in all different directions. One of those songs where you can hear everything every piece of emotion and backstory behind it.



Directed by Maya Luana, the visuals cast Harley in a world of pastel-coloured rooms in the midst of Australiana bushland. The charmingly sweet narrative follows Harley as she attempts to fix her world through a series of small, here-and-there, mostly superficial alterations before resolving to tear the whole fucking thing down.

Its simple but it also captures something surreal about how overwhelming and daunting it can seem to try and find your place as a young person in big cities, in the face of big, capital-I Institutions, all the while knowing that maybe its all fake and meaningless anyway, or maybe you spent too much time stressing over stuff thats not...
