Breakout alt-pop artist Isabel LaRosa recently released her song “HEAVEN,” alongside its video, the final installment to her three-song EP “i’m watching you” and video trilogy, which consists of her other two singles “HAUNTED” and “HELP”.
Fans of shows like Stranger Things and horror movies will find comfort in this video trilogy, which LaRosa said inspired her. The videos follow a girl walking home alone at night initially unaware of being closely pursued by an unknown figure. LaRosa picks up where the last video left off, as the girl wakes up disoriented and unaware of where she is, not realizing she’s dead.
LaRosa’s dreamy vocals paired with the engrossing video will leave listeners entranced.
“HEAVEN” progresses with the protagonist still trying to escape whatever is pursuing her, which she realizes is taking a different form. The fast paced atmosphere matches the track’s sturdy beats and bass, as well as adding emphasis to the vivid lyrics, like “Every time I blink, life is passing / Floating up, touching the ceiling / How the hell are we still breathin’?”.
“At the end, sunlight is seen for the first time throughout the three videos. This symbolizes that she knows she is dead, and the ending implies that she fully acknowledges her pursuer, no longer trying to run from it.”
Born in Annapolis, MD, LaRosa grew up accompanying her father to jazz clubs where he played the saxophone and her brother Thomas played guitar; she and her brother later would develop songs together: “To this day, we write everything in our bedroom; the middle school writing process still seems to be the best.”
LaRosa is certainly one to look out for after releasing this impressive trilogy. Watch the “HEAVEN” video here and find more exciting new music on our Alchemical Multigenre Mixdown playlist on YouTube and Spotify.
