This week we've been hearing a lot about Billie Eilish, the freshest upcoming pop sensation in the world. She's got a unique sound, artsy video clips and a dark message.
She has a new single out called 'everything i wanted' and it’s all about a dream she had that ended with her committing suicide. She has also opened up about her struggles with mental health in an interview for Elle Magazine, revealing that she often finds herself feeling overwhelmed and trapped in her own head.
A little background about her: She was born in Los Angeles, but grew up in a dodgy apartment with her parents, Patrick O’Connell and Maggie Baird. She has a younger brother named Finneas who co-writes and produces her music.
The video for 'bury a friend' features Crooks, who sings the creepy vocals on the track alongside Eilish. It's very similar to a traditional horror film, with a doppelganger of Billie, who has soulless holes for eyes, sleeping beneath her.
The lyrics for 'bury a friend' are a reflection on the difficulties of mental health and self-destructive behaviours. They express frustration, sadness and anger and convey the deep struggle of being lost and finding it hard to move on.
The 'bury a friend' music video, which was released on her official YouTube channel on January 20th, is creepy, eccentric and scary. It features Crooks, a British rapper and singer, and is very similar to a horror movie.
