Brighton newcomer LUVIA - a Little Indie One To Watch 2018 - released her first single, ‘For You’, last Friday through My Little Empire Records. And while LUVIA - aka Madeleine Vincent - may be a relatively new name to most, she is fast garnering tastemaker interest.
Little Indie can now today bring you the video premiere of ‘For You’, a song which she describes as about "giving into your guilty pleasures in order to make your life something more then what it is. Sort of chasing the next thrill in a way - but then realising how controlling that can become and how addicting that relationship can become."
Filmed in black and white by David Elphick from Bmusic, a Brighton-based production collective, at The Brunswick venue in Hove, "the idea was a straight shoot to match the atmosphere of the song. No extras, no frills, just me and the song," says Madeleine.
The simplicity of the clip allows her captivating voice to take centre stage, augmented by the plucks of reverbed guitar, that is both atmospheric and authentic.
