After a breakup, most artists strip down and embrace a quieter, sadder side of themselves. Not Globelamp. The psychedelic singer, born Elizabeth Le Fey, channeled her emotions into a wild pastiche of colors and sounds for her new LP, The Orange Glow, due June 10. Globelamp’s trippy style shines through in her latest video, a banger called “Controversial/Confrontational,” premiering right here.
Globelamp drew inspiration from David Bowie’s “Life On Mars” for the video, an easily drawn parallel given her ’70s-glam vibe. “This song is about having your trust broken,” she said. “I watched some friends go through a divorce and so many secrets started coming out. I wanted the video to have minimal set design, contrasting [with my] colorful makeup.”
″‘Controversial/Confrontational’ is the first music video I have ever produced,” noted director Elva Lexa. “Even though I had no experience with film, Elizabeth believed I could make her vision come to life, and I did.” For both Lexa and Le Fey, it was all about dressing up and having fun. “I’m very proud of the video because it definitely translates both of our styles perfectly.”
