Claire was interviewed by <a href="http://www.l-mag.de/news-1010/der-l-mag-geheimtipp-fuer-2012-kool-thing.html" target="_blank">L-mag about the video</a>. But in case you can't read German, here's a short translation: "For me the story was about seeking to re-find a sense of wonderment lost. In this case something has been lost in the relationship between the two women and the one left hurt decides to seek something to replace that feeling. "I didn't set out to make a specifically lesbian video, it purely happened that for me the natural inclination and inspiration of the song text was to portray the story unfolding between two women. But in this case I think this type of story has a universalism. Losing someone, or the sense of excitement and fulfillment in a relationship and what someone does in reaction to this. I am glad it is a story that unfolds between two women because it isn't often I see positive, accurate or not overly stereotyped representations of lesbians in commercial music videos."
