Months after releasing her only (official) trackand touring the US with AJ Davila T/A, Lola Pistola
returns with a video for "Tu Pensabas." Shot in and outside her apartment in Bushwick, NYC and produced by the Sea Smoke collective, the clip takes on the
form of a psychological thriller. Armed with a t-shirt bearing the words “Life
is Hell,” a 40 and a face marked by spite, disillusioned love and an
irresistible desire to kill, Lola Pistola leads us into a muted color
fresco where passion becomes unbearable, affection turns into anger, and
confusion is made easy by sadness.
While the gloomy image sequence exacerbates
suspense through ambiguity, Pistola’s description of her desire to face and transcend
her anger and loneliness to (re)discover her own self empowers and oddly allays
all fear – leaving us ready for another heartbreak.
