In the new clip for AlunaGeorge‘s “Not Above Love,” lead singer Aluna Francis works to extricate herself from a relationship with a man who “keep[s] robbing [her] heart like a bank.”
The video opens after Francis has left her lover behind. He calls her to leave a voicemail that is equal parts lovelorn and dismissive. “Where are you?” he asks. “Stop behaving like this. Call me, please, and let me know when you’re coming back.”
Though Francis doesn’t head back to him in the video, she can’t quite escape him either. As “Not Above Love”‘s clever mixture of soul and brassy electronic music blares in the background, she enjoys beers with her friends and eventually makes her way to a crowded club. But she keeps having flashbacks to her old relationship.
Still, she maintains her resolve and continues to keep her distance: “I know you’re thinking the worst of me/ But I hope one day you’ll see/ I’m not above love, I just ran out of air.”
“Not Above Love” appeared last fall on AlunaGeorge’s I Remember album.
