Today, “Subversive Queen” (NYLON) from Down Under, E^st dropped an official music video for her latest single “I Don’t Lack Imagination.” Directed by Josh Harris, the video debuted via PAPER Magazine. Watch the video for “I Don’t Lack Imagination” HERE.
E^ST explains: “This song is about building up an idea of someone in your mind, but then when you actually get to hang with them and get to know them you realize they’re pretty lame and nowhere near as cool as you preconceived them to be. An ode to all the bad first dates we suffer through.”
Unbound by past experience and influence, E^ST’s songwriting is united by a strong sense of melody and compelling vocal as well as a demonstrable commitment to the pop craft. The Australian artist was recently hailed by PAPER Magazine as one of their Top 100 Women Revolutionizing Pop, applauded for her “irreverent confidence” in “turning the microscope on adolescent heartbreak”. E^ST aka Mel Bester is busy working on new material expected to be released later this year.
