Petal Reconciles Dueling Personas in “Magic Gone” Music Video

Petal (Kiley Lotz) has just released the captivating and stirring music video for the title track of her latest album ‘Magic Gone’ (Run For Cover Records). Tackling the serious topics of self-love, acceptance, and inner authenticity, and how these things can influence the relationships around us.

Directed by H.S. Naji and filmed in a Clinton Hill apartment in Brooklyn, the heartbreaking and dreamlike video plays out like a short film where Lotz inhabits two opposite characters gradually becoming one. Lotz told The FADER that “the song is about distance and time in a relationship and trying to grow up together. For the video, Naji created a beautiful story about putting on a costume or performance everyday and trying to be true to yourself, which is very much a part of any relationship. Sometimes things just aren’t alright, and you need to voice those parts of your emotional life to have healthy relationships with yourself and others.”
