Nebraska-based artist Andrea von Kampen has announced the release of her upcoming album That Spell, which is scheduled to be released on August 6th via Fantasy Records. Along with news, Andrea has shared her single and video for “Water Flowing Downward,” a serene and breezy piece that flows through you ears as Andrea’s mesmeric vocals immerses you into a buoyantly introspective melancholia. Check it out: 

Speaking of the track, she shared: “The way I approached the writing of this song was different than usual. I wrote the lyrics one afternoon to an old hymn tune called Beach Spring. I had just watched the film ‘Parasite’ and was feeling restless to create and get my thoughts out and these tumbled out but I knew the hymn tune never really worked. I filed it all away and four months later my brother David and I thought about co-writing the last song on the record and I remembered these lyrics. I sent them over and by early July we had our song. I love the moodiness of the piano and strings and the sound of a perpetual movement.”  

On the video, Director Alexander Jeffrey added: “I’m a big fan of Andrea’s music, and we worked closely to make sure we were conveying visuals that were representative of the lyrics. Shreveport, Louisiana provided a variety of engaging backdrops, from the cypress trees at Lake Bistineau to the Downtown Riverfront under the bridge.”

Andrea will be playing a record release show in her hometown Omaha on August 14th at The Slowdown and will be announcing more tour dates soon.
