Lupa J – “You’re in My Headphones” video
“The song is about being completely and utterly consumed by a feeling of joy over a new crush. We then came up with this idea to create a clip focused around feelings of ecstasy and possession, bordering on madness—referencing scenes from ‘Posession’ (1981) and ‘Suspiria’ (2018).” – Lupa J
The Angus Burns-directed video was filmed between an underpass and a dance studio.
The audiovisual depicts Lupa J experiencing the conflicting energy that consumes us when falling in love.
‘You’re In My Headphones’ contains a relatable storyline, ear-welcoming vocals, and upbeat instrumentation flavored with indie-pop and electro-dance elements.

“Gus oversaw improvised movement by dancer Jennifer Poon and me before editing the two scenes together, matching movements in the shots to create the sense of interconnection. It becomes hard to discern whether I’m enjoying this state of possession or finding it painful, this fine line is the central idea of the project.” – Lupa J
