In the new video clip, Eilish swaps out the dim and dour environment of most of her video clips to jump into an animated environment. The online video opens with an animated Eilish sitting in a forest all through a rain storm and staring at the moon. The rain collects on pools and on leaves and the environment appears distinctly inspired by Studio Ghibli flicks like Princess Mononoke.
As the track proceeds, she wanders by way of the forest, clearing away the darkish clouds and the rain with her presence and triggering new everyday living to spring up from the ground. The freshly formed roots and vines wrap on their own all over Eilish, lifting her up into the sky and out to of the newly environmentally friendly and gorgeous forest. The total movie plays like a cross amongst My Neighbor Totoro and Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind. It’s attractive and hopeful, but not without the need of a minimal little bit of the melancholy and profound sadness that can make Ghibli and director Hayao Miyazaki’s flicks terrific.
Though this is Eilish’s second animated songs video, it is the 1st to get on a lighter and extra wholesome tone. Her last animated video was for the music “you must see me in a crown,” wherever she teamed up with Takeshi Murakami to build a video clip with an apocalyptic vibe that finishes with animated Billie turning into a huge monster … a considerably cry from the “my future” vision of Studio-Ghibli design and style spring.
