The new Michaela May video, shot around a wind farm in the desert, finds Michaela abandoned after a tough breakup. Left alone, she has to come to terms with the dissolution. The scenes play a perfect counterpoint to the upbeat, 80s influenced pop of You & I. Gorgeously shot, the video shows Michaela’s resilience when faced with a difficult situation. The isolation bringing on moments of clarity, while the shimmering production envelopes her stadium ready vocals. Pure pop bliss.
“You & I is one of my favourite songs off the EP and this is one of the reasons why I chose this song as the final single before the EP is released. The song is about being blindsided by the ultimate betrayal by your partner. It’s my most vulnerable song and I wanted to show people this side of me. I wanted to create an emotional, sad song but at juxtapose the sadness with hyper melodic production. And similarly to 1954, I wanted to display a certain amount defiance and strength in the lyrics that let’s the listener know that no matter how that person hurt you, you will still be ok. It’s that age old story…the one you love the most, hurts you the most” -Michaela May
