Candian neo-soul singer-songwriter LOONY has unveiled the official video for her latest single “be cool,” available for streaming everywhere today via AWAL.
Speaking about the track and video, LOONY explains, “When you have a crush, it feels cringey and agonizing and childish. You’re in a weird space of overthinking every move you make. And there’s this weird double feeling of being completely inwardly consumed by it all, but also not trusting yourself at all, so you’re looking for answers or advice from literally anyone else around you.”
She continued, “So I kinda wanted the video to reflect all that. The whole visual just came to me as a really linear story, that reflected the lyrics I wrote quite literally, so I just got my friends together and called Kosta and we made this thing. I needed it to feel goofy and slightly ridiculous and kinda candid because that’s just how crushing on someone feels.”
Utilizing a hazy, lo-fi aesthetic and pastel color grading, the playful official video for “be cool” finds LOONY being comforted by her real-life best friends in the face of insecurities triggered by a mysterious love interest. Watch below.
