The Dublin art-pop artist draws inspiration from Angel Olsen and FKA Twigs.
HALLI has released a new music video for her single 'Body Never Lies'. The young singer-songwriter released her debut single 'FUKC FEAR' in October 2018. Produced by Luke Potashnick, the debut track amassed 65 thousand streams. After two years of writing and recording across three different countries (The Netherlands, the UK and Ireland), HALLI is making her return in 2021 with the new minimalist and abstract video.
“Having moved to rural Netherlands as an act of self-isolation (under the guise of an artistic retreat)," HALLI explains, "I eventually ended up bedridden from self-neglect. During this time, I was forced to recognize that my body deserved the same level of care as my emotional and mental wellbeing - and that there are repercussions to ignoring that balance. "The song was a way to finally admit that I was mistreating myself. It’s an honest reminder of the body's fragility and how it will always mirror how it is treated.
“I filmed and edited the video over the course of a few weeks. It’s made up of several short vignettes all related to the theme of body dysmorphia and self-image. I wanted to explore the theme of delusion we can experience when looking at ourselves and the voyeuristic nature of identity. I used my own body and intimate camera work as tools for this.”
