The Japanese House shares emotional ‘Lilo’ video

The fiery clip features Marika Hackman.

The Japanese House made her comeback with new single ‘Lilo’ last month, and she’s now shared its fancy new video.

An emotional, atmospheric clip, the video features Marika Hackman as Amber Bain’s love interest, something the singer admits was a little strange, given Marika is her real life ex.

“Filming this video was painful, easy, real and surreal all at once,” she says, speaking to The FADER. “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 very 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 myself my heart breaks, but in kind of a nice way.”

The Japanese House tours the UK next month, and has also now announced additional European dates - view the dates and watch the ‘Lilo’ video below.
