Within the new video, Eilish swaps out the darkish and dour environment of most of her movies to leap into an animated world. The video opens with an animated Eilish sitting in a forest throughout a rain storm and staring on the moon. The rain collects on swimming pools and on leaves and the atmosphere appears distinctly impressed by Studio Ghibli motion pictures like Princess Mononoke.
Because the music continues, she wanders by way of the forest, clearing away the darkish clouds and the rain along with her presence and inflicting new life to spring up from the bottom. The newly fashioned roots and vines wrap themselves round Eilish, lifting her up into the sky and out to of the newly inexperienced and delightful forest. The entire video performs like a cross between My Neighbor Totoro and Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind. It’s stunning and hopeful, however not with out a little little bit of the melancholy and profound disappointment that makes Ghibli and director Hayao Miyazaki’s motion pictures nice.
Whereas that is Eilish’s second animated music video, it’s the first to tackle a lighter and extra healthful tone. Her final animated video was for the music “you should see me in a crown,” the place she teamed up with Takeshi Murakami to create a video with an apocalyptic vibe that ends with animated Billie turning into an enormous monster … a far cry from the “my future” imaginative and prescient of Studio-Ghibli type spring.
