A sweet and fun video accompanies a wistful and nostalgic dreampop track.

🎵Decades and Dreams

I posted a video from Atlanta's Bailey Crone, AKA Bathe Alone, just a few months ago. I had to share the video from one of her more recent singles, though, because it's one of my favorite songs this year. The song, which was written after Crone practically kidnapped her best friend and took her to a Beach House show seven hours away, sounds wistful and mature. The video is just fun and sweet.

The single artwork and music video for "Decades & Dreams" were inspired by old photos of both of her great-grandmothers on a boating trip together, "where they looked completely miserable," says Crone. The video shows Bailey and her best friend — and inspiration behind the actual song — made up in full grandma finery, complete with chunky orange life vests and curly gray hair. The two share a toast to nostalgia and relive youthful adventures in the bittersweet visual.

Melodic exhales form the backing vocals and mellotron (my favorite) is prominent in the song's instrumentation. The simple guitar line adds some emotional heft to the nostalgia.


"Decades and Dreams" is set to appear on Bathe Alone's sophmore album, Fall With The Lights Down, which is due out from The Record Machine on 7/8/2022.

This week's Friday Night Video is a bit of a departure from other recent entries in the series. There's no electroclash or spunky cover reworkings. It's a new track from Welcome Wagon. Welcome Wagon are label mates of Sufjan Stevens and purveyors of a similar religiously-tinged folky aesthetic. With lyrics
