“I’ve always wanted to make a version of Rihanna’s ‘We Found Love’ but a more realistic representation of a relationship”
Self Esteem has shared the new video for their track ‘Moody’, which stars comedian Alistair Greene – you can watch the clip below.
The artist — AK Rebecca Lucy Taylor — dropped the song last month to preview her upcoming second album, “Prioritize Pleasure,” which is set to be released on October 22 via Fiction Records.

The video for ‘Moody’ came out this week and features both Taylor and Greene, who play a couple whose once happy relationship is slowly falling apart.
Taylor said in a statement about the clip, “I’ve always wanted to make a version of Rihanna’s ‘We Found Love’ but a more realistic representation of a relationship, which you can see below.
“Music video tropes are so fun and easy to execute and I’ve spent a lifetime trying to avoid them, but I wonder what happens if I get into them.”
Taylor said: “There is nothing more inevitable and sad than the slow demise of passion and enthusiasm for each other in a relationship. I personally avoid it these days, the kind that would make you an enemy.” This is centuries old heterosexual bullshit. The ‘ball and chain’ joke.
“Fuck you… I wanted to play on that idea, highlight how boring and overdue it is.”
