Brooklyn based indie-pop artist Lydia Ford brings us the music video from her latest single off of her upcoming EP set to be released in August. Though originally from Ireland, Ford is quickly making a name for herself in New York.
“Read” is a song that is refreshing and a definite add on to my playlists. With lyrics that are catchy, personal, mature and melodious, Lydia gives us an even better music video to go along. Directed by Caitlin Stickels, who does a marvelous job in story telling, the music video features Ford as she receives a text from an old lover. Torn between what she wants and needs, she reminisces on past memories in a one-shot sequence that captures just how hard it is to separate yourself from a bad relationship.
The video was created by a majority female cast and crew. You don’t see that much these days, so seeing a music video from a female/female relationship perspective is always inspiring. As seen in Hayley Kiyoko’s videos throughout the past few years, Lydia is another artist who isn’t afraid to tell the world that hey, there is nothing wrong with representing queer women in music.
You can check out more from Lydia Ford as we wait for her EP to be released this August. Her music is available on Spotify, wonderful covers and other original music on her YouTube Channel and Soundcloud.
