This is Video of the Week from Wales Arts Review. We’ll be showcasing some of the best art in Wales with a new video shared every week. From music to drama and everything in between, videos will not be limited by medium. Today’s video is ‘Remembering Me’ by Cate Le Bon.
It’s that time of the week, and this Friday we have a real treat lined up… the new music video to go with Cate Le Bon’s latest single ‘Remembering Me’ released ahead of her album, Pompeii, which is due to come out in early February. The song is Le Bon’s third and final single from her forthcoming album, it follows the release of ‘Moderation’ and lead single ‘Running Away’.
This track (and the video to go with it) is stylish and clean, its grooving beat paired with Le Bon’s characteristically ethereal and – here, at times – languid vocals. Set against a white background, with Le Bon in a plethora of bright, primary coloured outfits designed by Monica Adriana Rowlands, the video is produced by Giraffe Studios and looks spectacular.
The song itself considers Le Bon’s own overthinking, the need to assert control over her own life, but what might be lost in the process of pursing perfection. Considering what she might be like if life had all gone smoothly, Le Bon sings on the chorus: “Upset and out of touch / Good grief, you missed so much/ Louder than empty rooms / Face down in heirlooms / Remembering me.”
Cate le Bon has described the track as “a neurotic diary entry that questions notions of legacy and warped sentimentalism in the desperate need to self-mythologize.”
