Gillian Stone is a musician from Toronto.
A few weeks ago, Gillian dropped the music video for Bridges.
It is a soaring, powerful and angsty vocal that is like a mix of Black Mountain, PJ Harvey and Weyes Blood.

Director Emily Harrison calls the video for this song a psychedelic dream inspired by a French New Wave film. Soundscape was key to the creation of this track, which she produced with Michael Peter Olsen during a cold winter in his home studio, in Uncomfortable Silence.
