We shared photos of this talent performing at the Deni Ute Muster back in 2016, and now TaTS has the amazing honour of premiering Hayley Marsten‘s music video for Coming Home, the fourth single from her EP Lonestar.
The new video, directed by Brock Daubert of The Filmery, was filmed in Gladstone at her Nanna and Poppy’s house with her real-life friends and family playing the actors. The video sees Hayley in her old prom dress as real childhood photo’s hang down around her.
This is perhaps the most intimate track off Lonestar and deals with her parents divorce when she was a child. Written with the perspective and hindsight of a young woman, the song is melancholic yet forever optimistic because, as Hayley best puts it, “Maybe one day, I’ll say, that love’s like coming home.”
Of all the tracks on Lonestar, Coming Home is the one Hayley gets the most messages about. “People come up to me after gigs to tell me they identify with it or that it made them cry,” she says, and the video does more than justice to the emotional journey so many unfortunately go through.
