Welsh singer Betsy has released the music video for her heart-wrenching new solo track, “Fair.” The video draws inspiration from David Lynch’s “Wild At Heart” and premiered this morning with The FADER, watch now: https://youtu.be/JGMitPTUtZs.
Betsy says: “I wrote and recorded ‘Fair’ in a state of complete despair during the final throes of a relationship. Writing it made me realise that it really was over. It’s about wanting to leave but not being strong enough to. In the video I wanted to reflect the feeling of suffocation and madness I felt at that moment. I’m a big fan of David Lynch, and I remembered the scene in ‘Wild At Heart’ where Lula’s mother loses the plot and covers herself in lipstick. It spoke to me because that was the delirium I was feeling and pretty much the way I was looking, hunched over my keyboard, bar the lipstick.”
“Fair” is available everywhere now, including iTunes and Spotify. Details of Betsy’s “Fair” EP, set to be released this spring, will be revealed in the coming weeks.
