Rising pop prodigy Henry Moodie contemplates the internal conflict and heartache that arises when two people fall out of love, with the release of his latest single ‘closure’.
Co-written together with Ines Dunn (Mimi Webb, Maisie Peters, Griff), the slow-burning ballad, brought to life by Moodie’s powerful vocal, explores the complicated dynamics of a fractured relationship when one person, sadly finds themselves no longer in love with the other.
The singles striking music video, starring Heartstopper queen Bel Priestley, and Sex Education’s Olive Gray, serves as a beautiful celebration of queer love that sees Bel and Olive appear as love interests in two alternate universes, where “reality and fantasy collide”.
Directed by Samuel Douek (Little Mix, David Gueta, Mabel), and described as an “ode to London’s underground queer club scene”, the cinematic clip was filmed on location at a 19th century pumping station in the capital, with a host of actors from the LGBTQ+ community.
The music video will premiere on Moodie’s official YouTube channel at 4pm BST today.
Commenting on the angst ridden track, as well as its accompanying music video, Henry says: “‘closure’ is a song I wrote about someone falling out of love with you; it’s simple and complex at the same time. The music video captures a mix of the emotions brought on by love, and I hope that it will resonate with people in different ways. This year has seen LGBTQ+ rights around the world threatened, and governments politicising the trans community for their own gain. I wanted this video to be a celebration of queer love helped told by the exceptional Bel Priestley and Olive Gray. There’s no LGB without the T!”
