CuckooLander – Beating Myself Up | Music Video



When Charli XCX launched her own imprint – Vroom Vroom Recordings – back in February, CuckooLander wasn’t an artist you’d expect Charli to endorse.


CuckooLander’s debut single for the label, “Beating Myself Up”, is a lullaby-like baroque pop number that explodes after the second chorus in a way similar to a Florence + The Machine song. As of July 5, there is now a video to accompany the track.


The clip, directed by Christopher Waggott, shows CuckooLander dressed like a Georgian doll. “Myself and Christopher,” she explained, “wanted to bring their melancholic demeanour to life through a one-shot spinning illusion. Throughout the song there’s an arpeggiated music box riff subtly nodding to classical music, so I wanted to transform into multiple members of a Georgian period band, highlighting the musical changes as the song constantly progresses”.

I speak as loud as the volume I listen to music, and this is probably symptomatic of my love for pop music: I love pop music because it is often unapologetically in-your-face, it shouts rather than tell, it drives you crazy. And after 21 years loving pop music, I think I’ve completely gone mad. It all started in 1997, when my mum bought me my first cassette: needless to say, it was ‘Barbie Girl’ by Aqua, and from that point on, it’s been a never-ending loving relationship between me and music. I study, work and live life part-time, and listen to music full-time.
