South London-based artist Tara Lily croons a modern tale of ghosting and trust issues in her all too relatable "Who Saw Who" video.
The grainy footage, directed and shot by Lucien Clarke, catches Lily waiting patiently at a table for a date that looks like it won't happen. She sings "who's told the truth and who told lies?" as she gets her tarot read and spends endless hours bathed in the blue light of her phone screen. Produced by BBK's Jammer, the song captures the vibe on London's grime and jazz scenes while the video taps into the univeral hardship of making love work in a busy city.
Speaking to The FADER via email, Lily said: "As our first video was on Super 8, we wanted to play with something different and real rather than jumping straight to digital. We tried to represent something of the story in the song and at the same time make suggestions of the themes of mystery and deception."
