Today, FLETCHER has unveiled the official music video for “Pretending.” The song is lifted from her album, In Search of the Antidote, which is out now.

A shining example of the album’s layered emotionality, “Pretending” channels intense longing, bittersweet frustration, and absolute surrender all in the very same breath. Inspired by early 2000s pop rock icons like Avril Lavigne, Michelle Branch and Kelly Clarkson, the sobg spotlights her powerful vocal performance over gorgeously jagged guitar tones. FLETCHER’s voice slips from tender to soulful as she speaks to the exquisite ache in attempting to hide your feelings from the one you desire.

I don’t know if it’s because I’m a Pisces, but I can meet a beautiful person in a coffee shop and suddenly start asking myself, ‘What would my life look like with you?’” says FLETCHER. “‘Pretending’ is about having that person at the back of your mind who makes you keep wondering, ‘Is it going to be us that end up together one day?’
