Lala Lala Announces UK Tour & Shares New Video For “Scary Movie”

Following the release of new album The Lamb on Friday via Hardly Art, Lala Lala – the Chicago-based project of Lillie West — has announced European tour dates for early 2019 along with a new video.

The video for “Scary Movie” is made up of recently discovered footage, originally filmed on 16mm by West’s parents before she was born. West re-edited it for the new song, explaining: “‘Scary Movie’ is primarily about perception and the often blurred line between reality and non-reality. For the video I wanted to use this 16mm footage my parents took of each other before I was born because although I didn’t exist yet, their experience is in some way a part of me, so watching it is both familiar and disorienting. This is where I came from, but if I view it as memory, I am technically wrong. It feels real and fake at the same time, which is how every day feels sometimes, and is what the song is about.
