Kate Bollinger – “Who Am I But Someone”

Kate Bollinger – “Who Am I But Someone”

Kate Bollinger has spent the past few years putting out EPs — her most recent was 2020’s A Word Becomes A Sound — and she’s got another shorter collection of songs coming out later this year. The Look At It In The Light EP is being released next month, and she previewed it a couple months ago with “Yards / Gardens.” Today, she’s sharing the silky smooth “Who Am I But Someone,” which comes with a charming video directed by Allyson Pierce. Here’s Bollinger on the song and visuals:

There have been many times when I’ve been so afraid to uproot my life in some way but just as afraid of what will happen if I don’t. This song is a conversation with myself about avoidance, denial, being afraid of change, and being afraid of stagnating. I shot the video in Los Angeles with Allyson from Pear Juice and a cast and crew of all women (besides our amazing producer Al!). Shooting the video was like being at summer camp – it was one of the best experiences and I’m so proud of how it turned out.

Check it out below.
