In the video for her new single, Feelings, Hayley Kiyoko dances her way into the heart (or at least grabs the attention) of a woman she meets while out on the town one night with her friends.
Kiyoko, who identifies as part of the LGBTQ community, has regularly infused queer themes and subject matter in her music and videos since she burst onto the scene two years ago with the hit Girls Like Girls.
Last year she released a clip for the song One Bad Night featuring trans YouTube star Erin Armstrong.
Talking about the video, Kiyoko explained
Feelings is super special to me because I think a lot of people can relate to the emotions that are brought on by being completely hooked on someone. I wanted to write an anthem celebrating these feelings, as opposed to suppressing them like society often makes people do in today’s dating scene.”
We have feelings, we get involved, and sometimes we can’t control it. After all, we’re human. I am thrilled about this release and excited for everyone to get the first taste of what’s to come from my album next year, not to mention I had a blast shooting and directing this video, which was all done in one take – something I’ve never done before.”
Feelings is the first single from Kiyoko’s upcoming debut album.
