Odd Beholder, the art pop electronica project of Swiss musician Daniela Weinmann, has released a video for her new single 'Accept Nature', taken off her forthcoming sophomore LP Sunny Bay.
Like her previous outings, this new album sees her approach unpleasant truths and societal misunderstandings through her wistful take on dark pop; her stirring vocals providing comfort in light of the honest commentary within her lyrics.
Set for release in autumn of this year, Sunny Bay was created during the lockdowns in 2020 alongside Berlin-based musician Douglas Greed and, in contrast to her first which focused on digitalisation, this long player addresses the "topic of nature, or rather the romantic notions and existential fears that nature triggers in us all."
Speaking about the story behind 'Accept Nature', Daniela explains that: "The song tells the story of an insomniac that watches funny animal videos on her phone at night. She’s chronically stressed out because she feels that she has to compete with machines at work - so she wishes she would either become a machine, too, or survive like an animal in the wild, where her instincts / feelings would be an advantage instead of a disadvantage."
