Amy Lawton Debuts Music Video For “Hurts Like Paradise”

Pop singer Amy Lawton has released the music video for her new single “Hurts Like Paradise,” which you can watch below. Talking about the song’s inspiration and filming the music video, Lawton says, “‘Hurts Like Paradise’ is a song I wrote when I was at school. It’s kind of a story about a relationship from start to finish, only it’s told from the perspective of someone who feels like they’re an outsider. I like that there are details in the song which show this character as they talk about their experiences. Even though it’s a sad song, I like to juxtapose sad lyrics with upbeat sounds.”

The filming of the video was a fun day as we tried to visualise the song and acting out a story for a video was a new experience for me. We shot the video down the same road where the track was recorded and where I write most of my songs in London. I really enjoyed shooting at the locations – great spaces and it was nice to be in familiar places!”
