“We had so much fun filming this. There’s something so visceral about dancing around on a pier in the rain. My hoodie was sopping wet, my bare legs shivering in the cold, my make-up washed away.
I felt stripped of everything material and mental. I felt reset. To Pretend is about being open and vulnerable, not performing to unrealistic standards. So it was the perfect spot to shoot the music video in.
I used to be scared to open myself up, and be honest about what I wanted, what I needed. I longed for the uncomplicated intimacy that comes with healthy relationships. To achieve that, I realised that I didn’t have to pretend to be somebody I’m not. I only had to be myself.
The music video really embodies this grounded, joyful feeling of self discovery. I’m not even embarrassed of my dorky dance moves. I hope you enjoy x ” – Ro
