The stunningly-soulful Lianne La Havas has just released the beautiful new video to accompany new single ‘Elusive’. The track, taken from Havas’ fantastic Mercury-nominated album ‘Is Your Love Big Enough’ is, in one word, brilliant, and the video itself is breathtaking too.
Video director Colin Solal Cardo has created a compelling storyline, rarely seen in music videos nowadays, expressing multiple subjects that’ll definitely get people talking.
Of the video, Cardo mentioned:
“I’ve been collaborating with Lianne for more than a year now, but working on this project felt like something completely new. Lianne’s a brilliant storyteller, there’s a true cinematic quality to her songs. When you listen to them, you go through all these emotions and narratives, like a collection of short movies. We felt like it was finally time to build a world around these songs,
give life to these love stories and let Lianne actually become these characters. Be it a candid young girl falling in love, or a heartbroken femme fatale in the middle of the woods. I feel fortunate for the trust relationship I have with Lianne, it’s something any music video director has to cherish because it’s rare and precious. Ultimately, that’s what allows an ambitious project like this one to exist.”
I could talk about Lianna La Havas until the cows [horses] come home. I buy a LOT of music, however album ‘Is Your Love Big Enough’ is probably the greatest LP I’ve seen in my collection since Maverick Sabre’s ‘Lonely Are The Brave’. Her sound is cool and fresh, simple yet effective. In all her tracks, Havas wants you to immerse yourself and ‘join’ her story.. pop on your headphones, block out all other sounds, watch this and you’ll see what I mean.
