LA-based artist lav's "from me, the moon" provides the perfect backdrop to intimacy and romance for a number of couples in her brand new video. The 21-year-old artist delicately coos "do my lips take you back to June?" over a gentle ukelele strum as hazy footage of lovers' private moments (dancing in the kitchen, cuddling on the couch) are captured on camera. It's an instantly tender vibe for a gossamer-thin song, a favorite of Billie Eilish's, that feels as if it could float away at any moment.
Speaking to The FADER via email, lav said: "'from me, the moon' is very vague when using pronouns and gender specific language, the messages online I was getting from the LGBTQ+ community were so inspiring, people telling me how important my song was to them and how much they could relate to it, regardless of gender.
"The video is just an extension of that, capturing couples of any race, any mix of sexualities. This was important to me to showcase, being a woman who has loved more than just men. Love hits everyone like a ton of bricks, anyone can fall victim. My video showcases that in a very real way."
