TROVES is the pseudonym of the incredible vocalist and writer, Lani McDonagh.
The Blip ADORES her brand, spanking new, dreamy and delicate single, LOVE, which is accompanied by a slick, shimmery, summery video filmed by talented Millicent Hailes that stars gorgeous model & photographer Nadia Lee.
The Blip asked Lani what inspired 'LOVE', and the concept for the video.
"An addiction to falling in love, being in love and letting that love destroy you - ( 'I get shivers, as I'm burning in your light, in this instance I still want the sun to shine' ) - Take over you. Rule you. It is about being in love with idea of love, rather than the person. The honeymoon period I guess. Newness. Chasing those stomach lurches & involuntary heart tremors. I compare it to a drug in the song but is also about humans needing something to believe in. Sometimes - maybe when there is nothing else on offer - that is what we turn to.
The video was filmed by Millicent Hailes and features Nadia Lee Cohen. It is set in LA and has a real indie teen-runaway vibe about it.
I met the girls this year on a shoot for one of Nadia's projects and both of them, individually are constantly making art very relevant to this generation. They are fucking cool, empowering women and are not afraid of being themselves - even if that means to offend some who don't get what they are doing. I wanted to collaborate for that reason exactly. I love uncompromising people."
When The Blip asked how she would describe her style, Lani replies:
"Woozy, confessional pop."
