MorMor has released a new song and video for “Don’t Cry. The visual was created by Titmouse and directed by Otto Tang, “Don’t Cry” is an examination of the commonality of existential dread, with the black-and-white animated visual showcasing MorMor and his neighbors as they spiral through an abyss of repetition.
MorMor talks about the influences behind “Don’t Cry:”
“I had started to write again in December with a few songs underway, but in March the world as we knew it came to a halt. Though I tried to continue writing it didn’t feel right. I was told I was being hard on myself, but I have always used music as a way of making sense of things. Suddenly there were just too many things to make sense of: A Global pandemic, the sudden lockdown, shortly followed by the protests. Voices were raised around the world because people have had enough. Mourning has become so painful that people are demanding changes. I felt I had to reflect that. Tears have fallen and we can no longer pretend that we’re not all in this together.”
