Starting over is as sweet as a golden sponge cake.” The scrapbook-esque video, directed by Emma Cosgrove brings a sense of nostalgia, with a rich, vintage feel from being shot on film. “The song is about starting over, so it was great timing to have Emma and I shoot the video while the flowers were blooming,” they say.
