Lily Moore - 'I Will Never Be (Acoustic)
Lily Moore’s stripped back video for the acoustic version of recent single ‘I Will Never Be’ brings her emotional delivery to the fore.
Shot in a warehouse studio space in front of a basic backdrop, it aesthetically borrows from Youtube session specialists Mahogany. It was filmed all in one shot which always looks pretty snazzy and gives the cinematography a flow that compliments Moore’s smooth vocals.
Her voice has an effortless husky tone reminiscent of noughties powerhouses Duffy and Amy Winehouse, but with an emotional honesty that keeps it from feeling like outdated nostalgia. The accompanying guitarist occasionally enters the foreground of shot, but there’s never any doubt who the star of the show is. Moore’s performance is expressive and arresting, the song’s sense of yearning comes through with every wry smile and outstretched palm.
