Love and hate with Billie Eilish's 'Chihiro' video

Billie Eilish has released a video clip for another of the songs included in her new album, the excellent 'Hit Me Hard and Soft'. The song chosen was not 'Birds of a Feather', the biggest hit on the album currently, but rather another of the most listened to cuts.

'Chihiro' remains in position 17 of the most popular hits on Spotify Global, and from today you can see its official video clip. In the clip -directed by the artist- we see Billie Eilish running down a hallway and fighting aggressively with a couple. Afterwards, they both reconcile.

In the second part of the video, Billie Eilish performs 'Chihiro' outside, in what looks like a residential area in the United States lost by the hand of God. Her partner appears shortly after and they both continue their affair lying on the grass.

Love and hate is exactly what the 'Chihiro' video provokes. Austere, he knows how to translate the peaks and valleys of the song into images. However, surely an album as good as 'Hit Me Hard and Soft' deserves videos just as good. Neither this one nor the one from 'Lunch' are.

In another order of things, Billie Eilish has neither confirmed nor denied that 'Hit Me Hard and Soft' is a double album of which the second part remains to be heard. At a meeting with fans in Paris, she said to “lower expectations.”
