THE JAPANESE HOUSE Unveils Video for ‘Lilo’

Delving into raw emotions, the newest video from The Japanese House is sure to break your heart.

Japanese House Lilo

The Japanese House shares a video for her latest single Lilo and it’s every bit as heartbreaking as the track.

Set in the tranquil English countryside, the video explores all of the emotions associated with a struggling relationship as it depicts a relationship on the verge of sinking. Through scenes of a burning car and shared embraces, it strikes a chord within you as you visually see the relationship deteriorate, as we start out with Amber Bain (The Japanese House) and Marika Hackman sharing a bed, but ends with a solitary figure on the bed.

The Japanese House says:

Filming this video was painful, easy, real and surreal all at once. I asked Marika to be in the video because I couldn’t think who better to be in it than the person the song is about. I’m extremely grateful that she said yes; I’m lucky that my ex-girlfriend is also my best friend. It was a slightly mad decision but ultimately, I think we captured exactly what I wanted to, which was a true and genuine representation of the love and intimacy we share. When I watch this video my heart breaks, but in kind of a nice way.
