Lavender Child, a.k.a. Toronto artist Caitlin Comeau-Jarvis, has shared a video for her new single “Happy Illusions.”
The evocative song blends alt-folk instrumentation with Comeau-Jarvis’ serene and enchanting vocals, while the accompanying video echoes themes of community, identity and a connection to nature.
“‘Happy Illusions’ was inspired from a weekend at an outdoor music festival,” says Lavender Child. “The environment alone was stunning; lush forests with enchanting art installations throughout the trails.
“The unsettling ambivalence of the place came from the juxtaposition between the people and the peaceful surroundings. My head spun from the irony both in relationships to nature and each other. I heard so many people say that they loved one another, which conceptually was beautiful, but realistically had me questioning the authenticity of the community.”

Lavender Child will continue to release new songs in the coming weeks up until the release of debut EP, Reflections.
