Anthony and Sally musical choice: Lucky Strike by Troye Sivan
Troye Sivan’s “Lucky Strike” has a visually pleasing yet striking video thanks to director Emma Westenberg.
The visual was released on January 10 and launches with dreamy beachy scenery and gets a tad darker under the summer sun.
Troye is hanging out at the beach enjoying a care free day in what seems to be a surreally scorching sun. The singer belts out “Lucky Strike” and soon notices the bartender, who makes him (and all of us) swoon.
After some deep thought, Troye musters up the courage to go order a “whatever” drink… here the video takes somewhat of a gory twist, kind of literally. I’ll let you watch…
Gammy nominated director Emma Westenberg was able to capture that “Lucky Strike” feel in the surreal oppositions of the pink-hued, blood-sprinkled video.
I’ve been wanting to write about this for a while but I waited for the 2 short films documenting the making of to be released. Sivan and Westenberg collaborated with Dropbox to release them and the second part just came out on January 16, the first having dropped two days prior.
