In addition to the sympathetic lyrics and infectious melody, the music video accompanying this composition showcases the artistic finesse of Chilli Jesson and Rupert Greaves. In this mesmerising visual portrayal, the duo immerses themselves in a surreal and entrancing aesthetic. They skill-fully explore a kaleidoscope of camera angles and diverse locations, thereby elevating the track’s overall impact to further heights.

You can catch Chilli on tour with Corella next month.
