videoSay Lou Lou 'You're The One' by Chloe Hayward
Twin sisters Elektra and Miranda Kilbey - aka Say Lou Lou - are back with their cover of Kate Bush’s You’re The One, and an emotionally rich visual for the track, directed by Chloe Hayward.In Hayward's video, the duo play two sides of the same woman, each battling her own inner obstacles which manifest into physical realities when trying to leave a relationship. While Miranda is in a domestic setting, Elektra (also an actor, recently in Apple TV+ show Shantaram) is constantly on the move, by car, foot and hitching a ride, to get to her destination.“The song is about the different choices we each make in love, that limbo of deciding to stay or leave," says Hayward. "We decided to play with the duality of the twins very directly and present these alternate versions of a love that might exist and simultaneously be a dream.“We were inspired by the Dogma filmmakers, so we set rules for the video as if it were a film. We never see the two girls in the same frame, Elektra is only ever seen outside and Miranda is only seen inside the house to echo these two versions.”Ambitiously executed, even with the aforementioned restraint in the concept, the use of lo-fi edit moments and creative cinematography helps elevate this video to true artistic heights, and it's a mesmerising watch.
