Lloren Drops an Anthemic ‘80s inspired Pop Single, “Like This”

“Initially the video concept was a quirky idea I had about falling in love with a mannequin at the end of the world. I pitched it to my very talented director friend and his weird mind met mine, and so the post-apocalyptic retro dream that is ‘Like This’ was formed. My character Lloretta is a die-hard romantic who is determined to avoid reality with escapism in the most theatrical ways. I relate to her very much and her need to seek out a little magic in these uncertain times.” — Lloren explained

The music video is set in a mid-century alternate reality, where the world faces impending chaos. Our protagonist’s quest for love with an unlikely counterpart becomes a poignant question on the importance of escapism during tumultuous times. The film captures the essence of seeking solace and connection amidst uncertainty, highlighting the timeless human need for unconventional sources of comfort and escape. Through its visually captivating blend of retro aesthetics, the video combines surrealism and nostalgia, challenging conventional notions of connection through a humorous lens. While visually stunning, this piece does not take itself too seriously, it’s a fun story of love as the end of the world draws near.

With its relatable lyrics and nostalgic ‘80s-inspired anthemic sound, “Like This” is about wanting the magic, and once you’ve had a taste of that good life, knowing you can no longer settle for anything less than extraordinary. It’s about knowing something exceptional exists and holding out for it.
