'Waiting to Breathe' comes from Mai's debut album Home, which was released earlier this year.
Elaine Mai has shared the music video for her track with Loah, 'Waiting to Breathe.'
The single was taken her debut album Home, which was released in May. Its music video follows the story of two lovers as they begin their relationship.
According to the Irish singer-songwriter, the music video "fits the track perfectly" and "draws you in and makes you feel hopeful and excited for this potential new couple."
Director Michael-David McKernan said of the video: "I wanted this video to feel like an escape for our two romantics; to capture that spontaneous energy that takes hold of you at the start of a new romance. That spontaneity is intoxicating, and so is Elaine and Loah's track."
The music video features actors Ally Ryan and Jade Jordan, who McKernan described as "phenomenal."
"Both of them instantly understood the subtlety of performance I was hoping to capture, and Ally gave us one hell of an un-choreographed dance for the video's finale," he said.
Mai will perform at The Workman's Club Cellar this Friday, October 29 for her sold-out album launch party. She will be joined by Loah, MayKay and Ailbhe Reddy.
"After such a long journey to this point, it feels really satisfying to be able to see the album out there being shared and enjoyed by people," said Mai. "Playing these new songs live has also been an incredible experience and I'm excited for more shows and opportunities to connect with audiences."
