IAN SWEET – ” Fight “

Posted: May 21, 2022 in MUSIC

Songwriter Jilian Medford capsulizes a hot-and-cold relationship — one whose temperatures were magnified by the pandemic in her new Ian Sweet single, “Fight,” a celestial dream-pop song that gets to the essence of things in the chorus, when it’s time to “f*ck and fight.”

It’s the second single (following “F*ckthat”) since her full-length “Show Me How You Disappear,” released last spring. Of what inspired the new single, she says: “Spending everyday with someone, doing everything together, not knowing if the world was going to end. Leaning on someone with such heaviness, putting our entire weight and being onto each other because it’s all we had. The song plays into both the monotony of the relationship and the catastrophe that I went through after it ended. I felt so content in the relationship but then my entire world fell apart when it ended and I didn’t know how to pick myself back up and move forward.”

Director Lucy Sandler’s video is anything but monotonous. Filmed at the Prime Time Pub in East Hollywood, it stars the singer-songwriter joined by freinds Liv Mai, Amber D’Amelio, Ed Taylor and Heaven Iriya as karaoke singers. “I can only describe making ‘FightT’ as a true celebration, a giant family affair,” Sandler says. “By the end of the day, all our friends became friends, the bar owners were taking shots with everyone, and Jilian got to crowd-surf, which made me tear up because she was so happy. I just wanted to capture the rawness and excited vulnerability that comes with a karaoke performance.”

“FIGHT” is the new digital single from IAN SWEET, available everywhere May 17th, 2022.
