Love Me More

by Syd Briscoe

Mitski: “Love Me More” - 3 mins 33s

Melancholy pop star Mitski is in a reflective mood on latest track 'Love Me More', which sees her plead for love to deliver her from the crushing grind of existence. "How do other people live/ I wonder how they keep it up/ When today is finally done/ There's another day to come".

The accompanying promo has an intriguingly retro vibe, fitting the song's synth-driven Eighties feel. A motorcycle crash leads to the singer in a full-body cast before things devolve into the truly surreal, with giant piano keys, puppets, and a cascade of flower petals demonstrating that director Christopher Good isn't afraid to dial things up to eleven.

One sequence in particular evokes A-Ha's classic video for 'Take On Me', as Mitski finds herself trapped in a white room bedecked with monochrome sketches of her in various poses. This is an absorbing watch which rewards attentive viewers, and will appeal to pop fans and film enthusiasts alike.
