Noah Lee creates a palpably resonant dreamworld, full of quirky visual tricks streaming from the subconscious of his subject, the intriguing Celeste, in the video for Tonight Tonight.

Once Lee sets the scene by putting Celeste through the mini-hell of not being able to light her recalcitrant cigarette, the video progresses into the psyche of the character our songstress embodies. The film meanders through dive bars and Alice-in-Wonderland-esque hallways filled with butterflies and complicated individuals.

It’s definitely the film’s distortions on common realities that make its dreamworld feel somewhat familiar - an authentic imagining of a subconscious mind. It's also framed in a film aesthetic, and with use of lenses that creates an aura that manages to be glamourous and romantic as well as surreal.
