Published Feb 07, 2017Toronto songstress Robyn Dell'Unto has a Canadian Folk Award nomination under her belt, but her latest single hears her taking things in a more danceable direction.
"Common" comes from Dell'Unto's recently released record Beaconsfield, and the accompanying video stars Philip Tetro (who some might recognize from MTV's 1 Girl 5 Gays). In the clip, Tetro lets his personality shine through in a combination of shots that capture both his dance moves and expressive close-ups of his face.
"I wanted to write a simple song about that awful sense of feeling worlds away from somebody you used to be so comfortable with," Dell'Unto tells Exclaim! "I think it's one of the most heartbreaking — and common — things to go through. Philip heard the record and immediately was like, 'Common — I get that. I can dance that.' He has this uncanny ability to express pain and make you laugh at the same time."
The black-and-white clip was directed by Ryan Nolan, and you can give it a watch right now in the player below.
