Los Angeles-based musician, A.O. Gerber has today returned with her alluring new single, Looking For The Right Things. The release marks Gerber’s first new music since her critically acclaimed 2020 debut album, Another Place To Need.
Looking For The Right Things spotlights Gerber’s ability as a songstress, whilst also highlighting her ear for ethereal arrangements – proven through the track’s electro-pop tones which are propelled by bright percussion and vivid keys.
Speaking of the track, she states
I wrote this song in 2017 in a moment of exasperation, when my desire to show up as my honest self and let someone else show up as theirs felt impossibly difficult. That refrain, “Looking for the right things,” was a sort of anxious plea. We tried to record this song for my first record and we couldn’t get the production right (irony!). As the years went on, I tried again to re-work it, and the repetition of that refrain started taking on new meaning. There’s anxiety in it, but there’s also gentleness, self-nurturance, and even some hope — this feeling that it’s worth it to stay open, stay tender, stay messy.
Accompanying the track’s release, A.O. Gerber has also shared its music video. An enchanting, charming video that resembles a dream implied through the freeing movements of Gerber.
A.O. Gerber is set to make two appearances at Brighton’s The Great Escape this month, offering a taste of what is to come in 2022.
