With her new single “Sicko,“ London via Melbourne artist CLOVES tackles social anxiety head-on.
“’Sicko’ is my best way of painting the tunnel vision, panic scramble of social anxiety,” CLOVES explained. “It’s like a living, breathing second personality in your brain. One which makes you question everything you do and say in social situations, worried that others don’t like you for it. It’s exhausting, not only keeping you from enjoying the present but also fucks with your relationships.”
The video, directed by Daniel Carberry and Carley Cussen, imagines CLOVES’ anxiety as a human stalker, following her through her life.
