Lisette Donkersloot Captures the Pain of Heartbreak for Novo Amor's 'I Feel Better'

I Feel Better is the latest track from Ali Lacey better known under the moniker Novo Amor, the Welsh producer, multi-instrumentalist, singer and songwriter. It is the third track to be released off his fast approaching third album Cannot Be, Whatsoever which is due for release on November 6th.

For the accompanying music video directed by Lisette Donkersloot, we are taken on a beautiful visual journey which portrays the reality and process of a painful breakup - the betrayal, heartache, solitude and finally moving on and rebirth after losing someone you love. Through the use of stunning setups and styling and featuring our beautiful protagonist Yu Lun Wong & others, this is one subject matter am sure we can all relate to and wonderfully untangles the very different and very deep sides of Novo Amor’s music.

Lisette explains: “For this video I was inspired by several things. One being a Spanish performance artist and of course the track 'I Feel Better' which I’ve really come to love, but mostly I wanted to capture the idea of recovering from heartbreak and betrayal. This paradoxal feeling where you on the one hand are dying to reconnect/feel affection but simultaneously are equally afraid to let anyone new in due to trust issues and the fear of getting hurt again, so you continue to shut people out and suffer in solitude. In my opinion this represents a universal feeling so I wanted to tell it from a gender fluid point of view. I am super grateful and pleased to have collaborated with Ali, he respected my vision from the get-go and gave me a lot of creative freedom.”
