Lala Lala Shares Video for “Scary Movie,” Plus Stream the New Album

The Lamb Out Now via Hardly Art

Sep 28, 2018 Bookmark and Share


Lala Lala is the project of Chicago-based Lillie West. Her new album, The Lamb, came out today via Hardly Art. Previously "Water Over Sex" was one of our Songs of the Week and we also shared the more low-key and haunting "Dove" (which was an honorable mention in our Songs of the Week list). Now she has shared a video for "Scary Movie." It features footage West's parents filmed of each other before she was born. Watch it below. And now that the album is out you can also stream the whole thing below.

West had this to say about the video in a press release: "'Scary Movie' is primarily about perception and the often blurred line between reality and non reality. For the video I wanted to use this 16mm footage my parents took of each other before I was born because although I didn't exist yet, their experience is in some way a part of me, so watching it is both familiar and disorienting. This is where I came from, but if I view it as memory, I am technically wrong. It feels real and fake at the same time, which is how every day feels sometimes, and is what the song is about." 

West had this to say about the album in a previous press release: "The Lamb was written during a time of intense paranoia after a home invasion, deaths of loved ones and general violence around me and my friends. I started to frequently and vividly imagine the end of the world, often becoming too frightened to leave my house. This led me to spend a lot of time examining my relationships and the choices I'd made, often wondering if they were correct and/or kind."
