L.A.-based singer/songwriter EMELINE premiered the spellbinding video for her single ‘this is how i learn to say no‘ back in November.
Filmed by the ocean, the breathtakingly shot visual serves as a perfect counterpart to the 22-year-old artist’s message of setting boundaries and reclaiming your power.
Directed by Joelle Grace Taylor, the video opens on EMELINE at the edge of the shore, fiercely glamorous in a chainmail dress.
With a ferocious intensity, she passionately portrays the song’s narrative of rediscovering your inner strength (an element informed by her recovery from a painful relationship, as well as by watching her parents’ marriage come to an end).
As the video unfolds, EMELINE tears off the heavy jewelry around her neck and finds her way to freedom, eventually running into the water in the track’s final seconds.
This music video shows the many sides to my vulnerability and strength throughout my personal healing and growth. I wanted it to show my pain and liberation by the shore. I love storytelling; and with this video I wanted it to be about connecting the audience with my emotions and allowing my lyrics & performance to be that bridge.” – EMELINE
