"The music video is a collection of pieces I filmed while visiting all my favourite places across the US," EVIE adds.
"It also features a few of my favourite streets from where I lived in my early adult life as well as being the same place I wrote 'Swinging On The Balcony'.
"To film this, a friend [Hollie Warner] and I drove around at 7am looking for my favourite spots around the suburbs. We would pull over and film the morning light because everything looked so beautiful and calm.
"It only took us a few hours before we had enough footage to pair with my film from travelling and I edited it together that night.
"This video means a lot to me because it's been, quite literally, years in the making. I filmed things on my trip knowing I wanted to use the footage in a video one day, I just hadn't written the song for them yet.
"It took a long time but I couldn't be happier with how it turned out."
