Hazel English sweeps us into the coastal Eden of clashing waves and sun-soaked sand in her latest video “Five And Dime.” Directed by Jason Lester, the video features Hazel’s perfect getaway in a beach built on cardboards. Lyrically the track finds Hazel reflecting on a love interest who seems to consumer her ad nauseum. Enjoy:
“‘Five and Dime’ is about longing for escape and freedom so I thought it would be fun to create an idyllic beach vacation, constructed from a set with cardboard cut out waves and fake palm trees. The idea behind it is that while I’m fantasizing about escaping to a tropical place, it’s clear I’m just kind of stuck in this pretend version of it. I wanted to evoke the nostalgia of Hollywood musicals from the ’50s and ’60s, complete with dance choreography and bright colourful costumes.”
The track is from her debut record Wake UP!, which is out now.
