The video, directed by Jodie Adele, showed the artist sporting horns and covered in a mysterious black goo. She dances and moves sporadically as the heavy-metal music plays; whipping her long, platinum-blonde braids around to the beat. We get a feel for the general tone of this video almost immediately.
The dark-tones are kicked up a notch when a blood-like substance pours over her. This scene, in particular, is very reminiscent of the 1976 Horror film ‘Carrie’: A hardcore visual to pair with a hardcore song.
To say the very least, the video for ‘Dirty Little Lie’ spiked a curiosity in me, as I’m sure it did for most viewers. I was curious to learn more about this artist, her genre, and what to expect from her in the future. If this song and visuals were any testaments to her uniqueness, I can’t wait to see what she comes up with in the future.
