The Japanese House enrolls her real-life ex in poignant “Lilo” video

The Japanese House‘s “Lilo” is out on Dirty Hit.

One month ago, we called The Japanese House‘s excellent new song “Lilo“, her first offering of 2018, an emotional calm. The track, which is a reflection on a five-year relationship, just got a video treatment and it’s absolutely poignant. The fact that her real-life ex Marika Hackman, appears in the clip is undoubtedly playing a part. About the personal video, Amber Bain wrote on Facebook:

Filming this video was painful, easy, real and surreal all at once. I asked Marika to be in the video because I couldn’t think who better to be in it than the person the song is about. I’m extremely grateful that she said yes; I’m very lucky that my ex girlfriend is also my best friend. It was a slightly mad decision, but ultimately I think we captured exactly what I wanted to, which was a true and genuine representation of the love and intimacy we share. When I watch this video myself my heart breaks, but in kind of a nice way.
