The Rest Directs Lola Young's Extravagantly Spooky 'Pick Me Up' Video

Lola Young and THE REST, mark their second collaboration following the crushing 'Blind Love' last year with their latest music video. 

'Pick Me Up' concentrates on Lola's performance while surrounded by lush decor and framed by gorgeous cinematography. Alex Motlhabane from The Rest explained the concepts behind the video: "We came up with an idea which has a few playful set-ups with a non-explicit backstory of Lola debriefing in a hotel room after a bad date.

Adding: "There's a running theme and a series of poltergeist-like moments that happen throughout the video which are inspired by the last third of the song which has elements that feel a little 'spooky'. We wanted to match that trajectory and have things go a bit off-kilter and hallucinatory towards the end".
