videoHolly Humberstone 'Scarlett' by Raja Virdi
Raja Virdi's latest video for regular collaborator Holly Humberstone takes her on a truck driven by her best friend - and subject of the song.Trawling up and down a moving arctic lorry, Humberstone gives an exhilarating performance, whilst best friend Scarlett drives it down an airport runway.“I really love the video for this track, the song is about my bestie Scarlett so she had to be in the video - especially after being named an ‘emotional grim reaper’" Humberstone explains. "The two of us break into an airport hanger, steal and spray paint an arctic truck, then I perform on the back of it as Scar drives it down the runway. It was honestly the most fun and so jokes. I was clinging on as I was being thrown about. If you look closely the guitar I throw off the truck is the same one from my very first video for Deep End and the banners were at my London shows at O’Meara!!"I really hope it feels as empowering to watch as it did to be on the back of it performing!! Loved how ironic the ‘bad British weather’ line is when we got the nicest sunset going for the video.”Breathtaking and liberating in equal measure, Raja and Holly have knocked it out the park once again.
