Molly Burdett's fourth collaboration with Arlo Parks, for the yearningly beautiful Black Dog, tackles the subject of mental health in a way that is as gently supportive as the song's lyrics.
Arlo Parks 'George' by Molly Burdett
Molly Burdett reverse-engineers the lothario trope in this erotically charged video for Arlo Parks.
A young heartbreaker wanders home through her estate, seducing women while her girlfriend waits at home. Their complex relationship plays out through improvised dance and a series of organic metaphors. There’s blood in the water, worms in the roses, and too many fish in the bowl. Miles Ridgway’s photography gives the video the heady, sensual atmosphere of a hot summer day.
This is Burdett’s second collaboration with Arlo Parks, in a series of gentle, carefully sketched studies of young Londoners. It was inspired by the romantic cult of Lord Byron, the self-destructive bad-boy of Georgian London, who allegedly seduced half a city.
"I imagined someone reckless and beautiful leaving a trail of broken things in their wake - unaware of the damage they’ve caused," says Burdett.
