WATCH | Montreal's LIA Releases Visually Striking Video For "Grave" Inspired By The Lobster

Music Videos

Pursuing the release of several singles that will form an EP due to the end of this year, Montreal emerging artist LIA got inspired from the movie The Lobster (Yorgos Lanthimos) for her latest track featuring Thomas White

Together, LIA and the video director Malo collaborated on a common theme for "Grave", showcasing true emotions through visually pleasing methods of including contemporary dance moves and a setting that fits the enchanting music so seamlessly. 

Through the movie themed, LIA questions the notion of being committed to a relationship with someone else:

"This movie really shook me and I started spiraling down a thought path asking myself two questions: What does it mean to be with someone just to avoid being alone & why force yourself to be alone/closed off from someone out of fear of getting hurt? 

The music video, shot by Malo, is also inspired by the movie:

"Inspired by contemporary dance, sign language and a scene of the movie “The Lobster”, the video for Grave strives to illustrate the end of a relationship. A silent and calm goodbye of two souls bonding for the last time with their friends there to witness and assist it.”
