Pale Waves 'Clean' by Vasilisa Forbes

Rob Ulitski - 19th Aug 2022

Vasilisa Forbes continues her collaborative streak with Pale Waves, directing the theatrical promo for Clean.

The video is set in a theatre, and explores the contrast between the intimate backstage world, (the inner-self) and ‘putting on a show’.

Inspired by cabaret and Old Hollywood glamour, we see vocalist Heather backstage, draped in pearls and luxury styling, before appearing on stage with the band, playing to an empty room. 

Amplifying the dichotomy of reality and fiction, the video is peppered with surrealist moments - such as an homage to the iconic red rose sequence in American Beauty - and traverses the line between fantasy and the real world.
