Manchester artist Abbie Ozard sends us back to the 90s with her vintage video “True Romance,” named after Tarantino’s 1993 film where she fantasizes in being the protagonist. Filmed with her best friend and photographer Charlotte Rudd, “True Romance” is an escapade from the restlessness we currently live in the new norm. The track is coiled with shimmering chords and is sprayed with a mild layer of wistful melancholia. Check it out:
On the single, she explained: “Growing up and living in a small town has made me dream of better things, and being a better person outside the bubble that I live in at the moment. I feel like I’m constantly having some form of identity crisis; I watched True Romance and thought ‘fuck, i just want to be Alabama in this film’ and live this mad life with a cool leopard print coat on and purple converse. I want to be this character, with a cool life, and ride around in a pink cadillac. Hopefully one day I’ll be happy with everything that’s going on and the way I am, but for now I’m just gonna carry on wishing I was in ‘True Romance’ haha.”
Abbie Ozard will be playing at next year’s Liverpool Sound city and Live At Leeds.
