Charlotte has released the video for her debut single I Tell Lies.
The track is taken from the rising star’s debut EP Nowhere to Hide, released on 3rd May, and the video is directed by Tommy Davis (Billie Eilish, Rat Boy). In the video Charlotte gives us a glimpse at her childhood with archive footage cut between a dynamic performance surrounded by her hometown friends.
Watch the video below:
Charlotte explains, “I wanted to create something that showed the contrast between me being an unfiltered, happy child with no inhibitions and the grown up me that masks my true emotions by putting on an act. Working with Tommy was the perfect person to help me create something nostalgic, authentic to me and unmistakably British in its aesthetic. I went through hours and hours of old home footage to get the childhood footage. We filmed the performance scenes in a pub with my mates because that’s where most of the nights that inspired this song started. This is my first ever music video, I’m nervous for people to see it but very proud of what we’ve made.”
Charlotte was discovered by hit maker Toby Gad. She is inspired by soul greats such as Sam Cooke, Aretha Franklin, Luther Vandross, Stevie Wonder and Otis Redding.
Now signed to Gad’s publishing company, Charlotte will release her four-track debut EP Nowhere to Hide on 3rd May. The track list is:
1. I Tell Lies
3. Somebody To Hold
4. Just Me
