As the world drags its feet through the last days of this tumultuous year, it feels as though a breaking point has descended among the populace. COVID-19 infection rates continue to skyrocket; the student debt crisis has reached over $1.67 trillion; and a year of economic fallout promises a hungry holiday season for millions. Even so, Polish-born rocker Ania has faith in the future. With the release of the music video for “Tuesdays,” the final single off of her debut EP Ania in Chains , the singer-guitarist confronts the crushing challenge this year has presented for so many.

The video opens with a pocket watch swaying gently in frame, foreshadowing the hypnotic, droning vocal that Ania wields throughout the track, before quickly cutting to the singer performing with cinematic views of Los Angeles in the background. With an engine of churning drums and seismic bass driving the beat, the Chicago native directs the listener, “Inhale, Inhale / And now times have changed / But don’t give in.” On the meaning behind the lyrics, the singer says:

“The song is really about being lost and finding yourself, I think. About finding your way. When the idea for it came to me, I was just walking around the mountains in LA and was trying to find myself again in nature. We’re all kind of lost right now, I think. We’re all there or we’ve all been there, all struggling with different things. But we’ll make it through.”

With previous singles off of Ania in Chains receiving acclaim from publications like Guitar Girl Magazine and Earmilk, the final piece of Ania’s visual EP bookends a debut project that indicates a promising career ahead for the young rocker.
