Electro-pop singer Eulene has shared the official music video for her single ‘Heartbreak Hostage’. While it appears to be a love song, Eulene is in fact expressing the heartbreak she felt when her father passed away unexpectedly. She re-captures moments with her father with the help of animation & motion team Beaux Latham (animator & Director) and Jonathan Richter (motion effects). Eulene sound sits close in comparison to the work of Björk, M.I.A. and Lorde to less obvious and more intricate undertones of Grimes, St Vincent and Son Lux.
Eulene shares her thoughts on the video, “In this video, I wanted to create a timeless art-piece to narrate the story of the song which is about losing my father, unexpectedly. I worked with two animators with motion capture technology of me dancing and applied it to a digital puppet. Then layered that in combination with animated 2D drawings alongside the process of degrading videography moments. It was a very cool collaboration and experience. I loved working with my animators to create this ageless and timeless video.”
