Nuela Charles - Crumbling Down

Canadian alternative soul songstress Nuela Charles has today unveiled her new single along with accompanying video for "Crumbling Down", which also serves as the first track off her forthcoming sophomore release, The Grand Hustle. Working with director Brandon Fletcher, the video displays a choreographed power struggle, but one in where both sides, at times, appear to take the upper hand. It's not a story about victims but rather resilience in the face of adversity. An anthem for the fallen. Public domain footage of tumultuous times in our recent history is used to give a wider lens and a bit of background to the story and the idea that over time, no matter what we face, if we hold on we will recover and rebuild.

Speaking n the track, Nuela says:

"Sometimes you have to fall. Hard. And then you get back up, dust yourself off and come back even stronger. 'Crumbling Down' is about a state of being. A moment in time. A moment of weakness. But recognizing there is a certain strength in weakness."

Watch the video for "Crumbling Down" below.

Premiere via The Fader.
