VIDEO: Valerie Lighthart – “Savior”
Eccentric folk-pop artist Valerie Lighthart has the video out to her single “Savior” from a few months back. Directed by Emry Briskey, Lighthart dons vintage outfits and elegant makeup in a themed concept about being closely watched and analyzed for how she appears. The shots constantly narrow in on her, which she told 88Nine Radio Milwaukee is meant to represent the men she refers to in the song. She picks up an old corded phone at the beginning and sets it down at the end, like she’s telling us how she really feels. Valerie Lighthart once again establishes powerful social commentary through beautifully cinematic artistry; we look forward to the new EP she’s working on.
