""Thinking of you" is a song for anyone who has ever spent too much time daydreaming about someone that was important in their life in some way," shares Laurent. "It’s about those little vignettes and moments in time we reminisce about when we’re busy doing something else. It’s about the instinct to maybe reach to that person we’re thinking about and want to ask them how they are or what they are up to, yet we always hold back due to being scared of seeming vulnerable." Director Julie Hendrickson adds “I’m really interested in what happens when a relationship shifts... when something drastic happens with a friend, with a lover, when death occurs... really any kind of dynamic switch. When there’s a disruption, the person you once knew disappears in a certain sense and lives on in your memory. This video explores what that could feel like... it flows between physical presence and memory.”
