Clayton Waller — a Mississippi native gone Nashville — is the mastermind behind indie/dreamy rock project Rock Eupora.
With three albums under his belt at the time of recording their latest self-titled album, Waller developed the sound of Rock Eupora into what you hear today, which is a perfect blend of infectious guitars, unforgettable melodies, and an overall dreamy sound. On this album, Waller contends with the challenges of a 20-something in their search of finding purpose in the world.
While this latest self-titled album found Waller recording in a professional studio (as opposed to his typical DIY approach), he still wrote, perform, and produced it all by himself. However, the change in setting allowed the amount of detail in each track to be truly appreciated. Altogether the album is the most cohesive and sonically adventurous album to date from Rock Eupora, strung together with seamless transitions that weave songs together, all the while telling a story strong enough to stand on their own.
Today, we are excited to be bringing you an exclusive premiere of the music video for “Inbetween, which appears on this recently released self-titled album. It’s dreamy, summery video is a masterful fit to the already heavenly sound of “Inbetween” (spelling intentional.
Waller had this statement to share regarding “Inbetween” and it’s video:
“Neither here nor there: that’s a tough place to be. Sometimes I only feel halfway present. It’s hard for me to live in the now — I’m always looking for the next best thing, always en route. I get so caught up trying to plan and control my future that I miss a lot of realtime fulfillment.
It’s safe to say that most of us stay too busy – which I think is partly a reaction to what we value as a culture. We associate worth and meaning with accomplishments. I think it’s good to be driven, but I think it’s more important to be present. I’ve been trying to love myself (and others) right where I am and without qualifications or conditions. I believe that humans are inherently valuable! And if that’s the case, maybe the in-between is what it’s all about”
