LILLA VARGEN SHARES VIDEO FOR NEW SONG ‘COLD’ – DIRECTED BY AWARD-WINNING IRISH DIRECTOR LOCKY & STARRING JORDANNE JONES

Having recently released her current song ‘Cold’Lilla continues what looks set to be a breakthrough year by sharing the track’s official video. WATCH HERE.

The ‘Cold’ video depicts a young woman trapped in a controlling and abusive relationship, struggling with the conflicting emotions that come with this situation. The award-winning Irish director Locky has crafted a powerful and intimate interpretation of Lilla’s lyrics, which features a revealing yet vulnerable performance from Jordanne Jones. The young actress was chosen by Screen Daily as one of their Stars of Tomorrow 2019. She has starred in the films ‘Metal Heart’ and ‘I Used To Live Here’ and will feature in the upcoming American TV series ‘The Angel of Darkness’.

I wanted the video for ‘Cold’ to tell the story of abuse in relationships. This is a story that thousands of women are living every day. I’ve had similar experiences and wished that I could have looked at that relationship more objectively. Even if things look okay on the surface, it doesn’t mean they are” says Lilla.

As soon as I heard the track I knew I wanted to focus on the minutiae of an abusive relationship. I wanted this to be an exploration of a toxic relationship; an introspective where we clearly see one person in a dominant and controlling role over the other. Jordanne and Ben really carry us through this story beautifully. There’s an interesting dynamic between their characters…  I wanted to do this without every showing any of the actual abuse. Abuse comes in all shapes and sizes” adds Locky.
