Chela directs, choreographs and styles her new music video

Words by Mariah Papadopoulos

Triple threat.

Heart O’ Hearts is the latest single to drop from Australian-Filipino artist Chela’s upcoming EP Delivery.

Producers Andrew Lappin (St. Lucia, Born Rivals), Chris Zane (Passion Pit, Holy Ghost!) and Sameer Sengupta (Smashing Pumpkins, London Grammar) all had a hand in developing the song’s alt-pop flavour.

The music video, however, is a creation all of her own.

With creative direction and choreography masterminded by Chela, the clip features the artist and her friend on an outdoor dance floor.

The singer styled the video herself, envisioning slicked-back hair and unpretentious shirting as a blank canvas for viewers to experience the depth of emotions in the track.

“It’s a mantra for quieting down the dark side of yourself,” she says. 

You can feel her high-energy sound running against the grain of modern pop. Watch the video below.

Chela’s Australian tour dates:

Sydney: Friday 30 August, Beresford Music and Booze (free entry)

Melbourne: Friday 13 September, Grace Darling
