White Lies & Palm Trees is a synthpop song featuring sounds inspired by Stranger Things and sing-a-long vocals. With a cinematic visual style comparable to “Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World”, the singer wakes from an obvious hangover and leads the viewer down a rabbit hole of temptations: masked girls, drug deals, bags of money and unsigned record contracts.
Directed by psychedelic visionary Javier Burgos, partnered with visual artist Matthew Lyon, under their company, Apeship Entertainment, “White Lies & Palm Trees” features a past, present and future of The Lovepools story told through a parallel universe of the band acting and performing in live action while fighting as their respective 8-bit characters in retro arcade gameplay down Hollywood Blvd.
The video was edited by Ken Koller who is known for his editing work with Nicki Minaj, Asher Roth and Patrick Stump. (In the video: Anthony Shea & Aria Cruz)
