Self Esteem reveals the video for ‘Moody’

“I’ve always wanted to make a version of Rihanna’s We Found Love but a more realistic representation of a relationship.”

Ahead of the release of her eagerly awaited new album ‘Prioritise Pleasure’ on 22nd October, Self Esteem is sharing the video for most recent single ‘Moody’.

“I’ve always wanted to make a version of Rihanna’s We Found Love but a more realistic representation of a relationship,” she says of the vid, which stars comedian Alistair Green. “Music video tropes are so fun and easy to execute and I’ve spent a lifetime trying to avoid them, but I wondered what happens if I just indulge in them. There is nothing more inevitable and sad as the slow demise of passion and enthusiasm for each other in a relationship. I personally avoid it happening these days, the way you become enemies. It’s age old heteronormative bullshit. The ‘ball and chain’ jokes. Fuck that. I wanted to play on that idea, highlight how boring and overdone it is”.
