All The Good Giarls Go To Hell

by Syd Briscoe

Billie Eilish: “All The Good Girls Go To Hell” - 3 mins 41s

Hipster messiah Billie Eilish falls to earth in this striking promo for 'All The Good Girls Go To Hell'. The apocalyptic lyrics only enhance the film's dark and gritty vibe, as wings violently sprout from the singer's back and she finds herself engulfed in oily black tar: angelic nature covered up with something far more sinister. It's just the right kind of melodramatic, and ends up all the cooler for it.

The film also serves to hammer home the track's environmental message. 'Hills burn in California/My turn to ignore ya' is accompanied by slowly spreading fire, trapping the singer until she gives in and accepts her new, demonic role. For a generation crying out for the people in power to do something about climate change, it's an affecting warning about giving in to complacency.

Cinematographer: Christopher Probst
