#NP: Say Lou Lou - Nothing But A Heartbeat

New MusicRebecca PotznerComment

The Swedish/Aussie twin sisters, Say Lou Lou, are at it again, debuting their “Nothing But A Heartbeat” music video. The video complements the ethereal track with beautiful visuals. The synth pop duo sprint through a mesmerizing 8 1/2-minute dreamscape to find their way to each other.

"Say Lou Lou wished for a video that would capture the essence of the album's theme Lucid Dreaming, and to me that sounded extremely interesting and challenging," explains director Joanna Nordahl. "I sought inspiration in documentaries on lucid dreamers, listened to Hans Zimmer for days, read excerpts from On Being Ill by Virginia Woolf and kept a dream diary of my own while writing the narrative. I wanted the story to draw parallels to big religious ideas while exploring some personal thoughts on mental sanity. I’m a huge fan of Von Trier’s film Melancholia… So, in retrospect, I believe that probably served as an influence as well."

“Nothing But A Heartbeat” is from their debut LP “Lucid Dreaming,” which is out now. The album has been in the works for two years now, and the sisters have collaborated with an all-star team of producers that have worked with big names like Foxes, Icona Pop, Lana Del Rey, and Ellie Goulding. Expect great things from these two.
