RALPH’s “Looking For You” Pretty Much Explains Why We’re Single

When you find the love of your life, but can’t see his face

Canadian artist RALPH captures the magic of finding love at first sight in her new video “Looking For You” – BUT she actually shows us the reality of it and pretty much explains why we’re single. The song is coated with the exuberant mistiness of lush synths and heart-throbbing drums that makes it the perfect soundtrack of any romantic film. The video, on the other hand, shows RALPH who is lovestruck by someone but can’t see his face coz the universe seems to be working against her – yup, that sums up our love lives:

On the video, RALPH shared:

“One night after ‘some’ wine, my dear friend Matt brain stormed a music video concept – a lead character who keeps catching brief glimpses of this recurring person, but every time they try to see their face, the stranger is obstructed by something then disappears. When I reached out to Rosanna Peng, a talented Toronto/LA director I admire, I floated this idea for the ‘Looking For You’ video…and she was totally down. Her videos are so unique and aesthetically driven that I knew she could nail it. After adding our own personal quirks and trademarks, we managed to create a visual story that we feel encompasses the feeling of the song perfectly. The dreamy bedroom scenes (my own bedroom!) connect to the honest, intimate lyrics, while the colourful styling and character intros keep the video light and fun. It’s not about desperation or needing someone to fulfill you, it’s about excitement and the myth of ‘love at first sight.'”

“Looking For You” is from RALPH’s new EP Flashbacks & Fantasies, which is out now. She will be kicking off her North America tur in December with joan, so go see her:
