Hot on the heels of the release of her official video for her brooding 13 Reasons Why soundtrack cut “Bored,” which is currently our Video of the Week (see sidebar), Billie Ellish returns with yet another stunner: “watch“!
As with “Ocean Eyes,” “Six Feet Under” and “Bored,” Billie teamed up with her 19-year-old brother Finneas for the mesmerizing lullaby, which sees her lamenting a break-up across gorgeous atmospherics and lush mid-tempo electronica. The song also comes armed with a major power-pop hook of a chorus (“I’ll sit and watch your car burn/ With the fire that you started in me/ But you never came back to ask it out..“) and a heavenly bridge that solidifies it as another impressive output from the rising starlet.
For those in search of a dose of drowsy mid-tempo to cap off your weekend, Billie is serving up the right kind of medicine – Get familiar!
“The song is about letting go of someone toxic and moving on,” Billie said in a statement. “Setting your ex’s car on fire is a pretty horrible thing to do… but I can think of worse things.”
“watch” by Billie Eilish is also available on Spotify and Apple Music!
