George Maple – ‘Lover’
George Maple has nailed the visual counterpart for her brand new single Lover, enlisting the physical prowess of supermodel Jordan Barrett to do so.
The clip doesn’t appear to follow a linear narrative, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a message here. What looks to be a celebration of the strength and from of the human body is just, so much more.
In a statement regarding the clip, Maple explains the mission statement was “to capture the beauty in the primal obsession of love. Messy love. Destructive love.” You can read the full statement below.
Lover is the latest move from Maple who seems to be having no trouble at all crushing 2016. We imagine those who consider themselves peers of Maple would be feeling a bit of a chill down their spine at this point.
“I wanted to capture the beauty in the primal obsession of love. Messy love. Destructive love. The dopamine effect. The power of loss or struggle and what it drives humans to do. I wanted to capture that feeling in a film, I wanted to feel the rage and confusion of complex love, or love you simply don’t want to have but can’t seem to get away from.
“It could be the wrong timing, or you could be involved with someone else, it could be forbidden love, they could be completely wrong for you but there’s a magnetism that drives you completely insane.”
