Baby Queen 'Wannabe' by Roisino
Roisino's directs the video for Baby Queen's Wannabe as a cartoonish version of a band's early steps to rock stardom, with Bella Latham (aka BQ) and her colourful buddies lounging in a chaotic 'green room' area, before a triumphant live performance to enthusiastic fans.
Tapping into the penetrating self-analysis that you get with every Baby Queen song, Roisino drew on their own teenage experiences hanging with friends who had bands that were trying to make it, and trying to be cool.
"The narrative of ‘Wannabe’ is a satirisation of anyone who doubted Baby Queen’s musical abilities," says Roisino. "We follow Bella in a vintage surrealist world; a chaotic yet stereotypical green room, through to an onstage pop queen hero moment.
"Drawing references from instinctual play in youth; I referred back to a time in my life between fifteen and eighteen whereby I was constantly surrounded by bands, always at soundcheck and hanging out in the green room.
"We definitely weren’t considered cool, but it was a period of time in my life that is unmatched in terms of its feeling of unification through difference. We were the misfits, the oddballs, the weirdos and wannabes; the kids that wouldn’t ever make it. Look at us now."
