This New Music Video Is A Nostalgic Ode To Missing Home


WILSN premieres "Home" today via NYLON

WILSN was quite a long way from home when she was writing and recording in Nashville, Tennessee. So, the Melbourne, Australia-native reconciled her feelings of homesickness by pouring them into an otherwise upbeat track, "Home." Today, she premieres the visuals exclusively via NYLON.

Putting together the music video for "Home" wasn't the result of an elaborate shoot, but rather WILSN tells us, "It was made from my own personal footage over the last two years of my life spent traveling between Melbourne, Nashville, Austin, and L.A." Of course, she clarifies, "I was enjoying my time overseas working on my music and forging lifelong friendships with new people," but the time spent away from family and friends made the experience somewhat bittersweet.

She juxtaposed the lyrics, written originally to a piano hook by bandmate Jon Upton, onto footage which shared similar emotions. She explains, "In the verses where the lyrics are of a conversational nature and filled with reflection, you see the world from my point of view out of car windows as journeying from city to city contemplating everything." But then, she adds, "when the choir comes in for an explosive chorus, we see footage of past fun times I've had with both friends back home and my new friends overseas."

HBO dropped the ball on this one

Game of Thrones may have snagged a record number of Emmy nominations, but it's not all thanks to HBO putting its stars up for the awards. Instead, Gwendoline Christie—aka Ser Brienne of Tarth—submitted her own name for consideration via her agent after HBO failed to do so on her behalf. And, naturally, the Emmys recognized her incredible performance and nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series along fellow GoT castmates Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, and Lena Headey. Be your own biggest fan, and it might just end up paying off!

My interest level has peaked with this new clip

I'm not a Taylor Swift fan, and that's putting it nicely. So all of the fuss about the new Cats movie that she's starring in has been intentionally off of my radar.

It's pricey, but hear us out

Co-captain of US women's national soccer team and queen of fire hair looks Megan Rapinoe has to keep up with that purple mane just like the rest of us colored-hair folk. Maintaining hair that vivid can be difficult, to say the least, but not impossible—especially when you have a good colorist. Unsurprisingly, Rapinoe's is one of the best. According to a press release, expert colorist and balayage specialist Richard Drews keeps Rapinoe's hair cool-toned and vibrant using Kérastase Blond Absolu Masque Ultra-Violet which is like your favorite purple shampoo times 10.
