When it comes to her music videos, UK songstress Elle Watson transports you into another world that taps into the cores of your vulnerability with stunning visuals. Following her widely acclaimed video “Glued,” Elle Watson has unveiled her newest one “Suspended” where she addresses the effect of addiction on the person and his/her loved ones. Nestled between melancholia and euphoria, “Suspended” is an uncensored confession of being in a toxic relationship that is bound to end. Directed by Haris Nukem, “Suspended” exposes the emotional heaviness that derive from substance abuse:

“The characters in the video are a representation of different ideas associated with substance abuse, ranging from the temptation to the ‘glamorous’ side. It also demonstrates how drug taking can drown & expose the user into feeling paralyzed by paranoia. My character in the video is on the receiving end of their decisions as I sing about being in love with somebody who abuses drugs. The end is a symbolic acknowledgment that I can no longer pretend to ignore these harsh realities.”

The 20-year-old songstress has already become one of the fastest rising songstress in the UK with her debut EP Phantom and “Glued.” Since the age of 15, Elle has been mentored by Paul Epworth (Adele, Florence & The Machine, Friendly Fires) and has been honing her craft while working with renowned producer. “Suspended” is now available on Wolf Tone/Island Records.
