Video Premiere: Mo•Louie - Hold You
Naarm/Melbourne-based artist & producer comes in hot with a wild new electro-pop anthem alongside a striking music video
Fusing elements of classic house sounds with bouncy underground club vibes and irresistible pop vocals is Mo•Louie on her new single Hold You, which alongside a video that explores the concept of “eroticism & suffocation” is premiering on Pilerats a day ahead of its August 23 release.
Following on from recent single Signs, Hold You sees Mo continue her personal approach to songwriting, being inspired by daily life experiences as she explains “‘Hold You’ represents me being suffocated by my everyday life, being completely burnt out and knocked down, just wanting to go out and get messy. Rather than put this suffocated feeling aside and go out, drink, dance and have a good time, I would use the frustration to elevate my free and reckless experience. Using that energy with someone I don’t know and feeling it with them sexually. So the pain and pleasure coincide.”
Hold You comes alongside a music video that saw Mo collaborate with fellow Naarm-based designer Something Shit, with the clip filmed by Bonn Creative and edited by Mo herself, as the video literally reflects the suffocation through being wrapped in clear plastic, complete with smeared lipstick.
