Self Esteem has shared a new single for her latest single ‘Moody’.
The track is taken from Rebecca Lucy Taylor’s second solo album under the Self Esteem name, ‘Prioritise Pleasure’, which is set to arrive on 22nd October.
“I’ve always wanted to make a version of Rihanna’s We Found Love but a more realistic representation of a relationship,” she says of the video. “Music video tropes are so fun and easy to execute and I’ve spent a lifetime trying to avoid them, but I wondered what happens if I just indulge in them. There is nothing more inevitable and sad as the slow demise of passion and enthusiasm for each other in a relationship. I personally avoid it happening these days, the way you become enemies. It’s age old heteronormative bullshit. The ‘ball and chain’ jokes. Fuck that. I wanted to play on that idea, highlight how boring and overdone it is”.
The clip also stars comedian Alistair Green. You can check it out below.
