Tove Lo 'Blue Lips' by Malia James
In Malia James's short film that uses tracks from her album Blue Lips as the score, Tove Lo and her best friend (played by Ana Coto) head out of town for a weekend of hedonism, after the friend suffers a disappointment in the dating game.
With the tang of realism that comes from a combination of improvised dialogue through a series of beautifully shot scenes, the co-written script by James and Lo explores the pair's relationship "in a sexually fluid and post-feminist world", soundtracked by songs from the album.
"In the era of visual albums like Beyonce’s Lemonade and Sampha‘s Process, I wanted to make a narrative film that used the album as the score. Unlike a traditional narrative short, the film’s primary function was to showcase most or all of the album visually, so each scene was shaped around how we’d incorporate the track.
“Blue Lips explores the rich and complicated friendship between two women in a sexually fluid and post-feminist world. The film stars Tove Lo and features her album Blue Lips as the score."
