Dwelling on themes of smoke and the danger of love, a nocturnal scene turns into a series of strange mirages. Through a provoking long take, Soleil plunges us into the uncertainty of an otherwise familiar world that suddenly collapses.
The big hoodie wore by Miranda represents the oppressing burden of her man. In the end, she cleanses her soul in the water while the shirt burns away: she frees herself and is reborn.
The song evokes the weight a toxic relationship has on lovers. I wanted to showcase these emotions through the performance of the dancer who embodies the loneliness expressed by the song.
