Petal protects her heart with new video for the vulnerable “Chandelier Thief”
Introspective indie outfit Petal continues to make 2016 their most important year yet, releasing a captivating new video for “Chandelier Thief” off of their fantastic 2015 release Shame.
Focused on creative leader and front-woman Kiley Lotz, the video came at a time, she tweeted, when her “depression/paranoia symptoms were bad and I wasn’t doing so hot.” But Lotz found strength through the project with help of friend and director Sarah Trad. Simplistic, stunning visuals capture the beauty of the slow-rock jam as it tells the story of a “brick-laying lover,” a figure who’s unavoidable blue eyes pull Lotz into a tight fight between love and lust. A song that both says hello and goodbye, Lotz’s indecisiveness is a cry for help, engulfed by the uncertainty of who she’ll be after “blue eyes” is gone.
