Music is Life! This age-old adage is a valid truth, which has been proven beyond reasonable doubt time after time. A significant example of such is that despite the ravaging effect of the COVID-19 pandemic, the music industry has being ingeniously adapting to the new world order. Connecting and bridging the gap between music acts and their teeming fans across the globe.
Bilie Eilish and Finneas O’Connell (her brother and music collaborator), recently participated in the popular Tiny Desk Concert series. However as against the regular performance from the nominal Tiny Desk in NPR office. Billie and her brother, recreated a perfect replica of the Tiny Desk set-up with cardboard cutouts and props.
The duo’s in-house performance was both sonically ecstatic and emotionally therapeutic for the virtual audience. At the commencement of the video, Eilish said:
“I’m honored to be here. I’ve been watching this for years. We have both been watching them for years.”
She did a rendition of her newest single, “My Future,” which she also recently performed at the Democratic National Convention. Eilish then stopped to reflect on the myriad of challenges in the year so far.
“Quarantine’s been weird. I know you all feel the same. It’s been weird. We don’t know how long it’s gonna go. There’s barely anything that feels like there’s any hope in, but I think the future is something to be super hopeful in — the unknown and what is to come. We’ll be OK one day, maybe not right now. I think that’s what’s been making me hold on.”
The short concert ended with a performance of “Everything I Wanted,” which she dedicated to her brother Finneas, for the support they offer each other.
