K.Flay Refuses to Move Backwards in Playful ‘Sister’ Watch

56

In her last music video for "Bad Vibes," K.Flay began telling a story without a definitive conclusion. After escaping from an "involuntary lockdown" with a fellow inmate, the video ended, showing the two leaping off a roof and toward their freedom. But what happened after that? 

The artist answers that question in her latest music video for "Sister," out today (July 30). Picking up where "Bad Vibes" left off in the "Solutions Trilogy," the video shows the two women meeting up on a street and beginning a night out together.

But as they move about their town, they realize that everything and everyone around them is moving in reverse, as they continue to push forward. "When you call me up, I'll be at your door/ I wanna be your sister," K.Flay sings.

According to a press release, the shooting process for the video required some extra work from Kristine Flaherty (K.Flay's real name). Since the entirety of the singer's surroundings needed to be happening in reverse, while filming, it was actually Flaherty who had to shoot her scenes backwards. To make the video look right, Flaherty had to learn the song backwards in "phonetic gibberish."

"Sister" comes off of K.Flay's latest album Solutions, which debuted to critical acclaim on July 12. This fall, the star is heading out on her headlining Solutions Tour through North America, starting on Sept. 3 in Phoenix, Arizona. Check out the dates and available tickets here.
