Lauren Aquilina – “Swap Places” music video
With its lo-fi camera filters and retro neon imagery, the official video for “Swap Places” harnesses a nostalgic vibe from the outset. The audiovisual was filmed at Lauren Aquilina’s quarantine home in Larchmont, Los Angeles. And it features some of her real-life friends including Caroline Pennell, Liz Cohen, and Amy Hart.
‘Swap Places’ contains a relatable narrative, ear-welcoming vocals, and harmonious melodies. Also, the lovable tune contains melodic instrumentation flavored with a contemporary pop vibration. Moreover, “Swap Places” serves as a wonderful presentation of what listeners can expect to hear on Lauren Aquilina’s upcoming EP.
“Can I swap places with someone who doesn’t want to be someone else?”
“‘Swap Places’ is a song about insecurity, but mostly it’s a song about wanting to be nicer to yourself. I find that when I get into that dark hole of comparing myself to other people, it’s usually not because I actually would rather be someone else, but more that I just wish I had the confidence to be the best version of myself all the time. It’s a lyric that resonates a lot with me. But, also, the most upbeat pop song I’ve put out for a while. So I’m excited for people to hear it.” – Lauren Aquilina stated
Lauren Aquilina first emerged on the scene when she released a trio of EPs (“Fools”, “Sinners”, and “Liars”) while still at school. Shortly afterward, she released her debut album, entitled, “Isn’t It Strange?” In 2016, and more recently, she wrote songs for Bloodpop, Ava Max, Rina Sawayama, Olivia O’Brien, and FLETCHER.
