Following loads of international blog love and national radio play since the song’s release, Sydney indie electro-pop songstress Allie Conlay, who goes by the musical pseudonym Allie & Ivy, brings you the music video for her latest single Best Friends. Filmed in CinemaScope, you’ll be taken to another time and place as Allie & Ivy welcomes you to a retro-inspired world of bubblegum aesthetics, sunshine and good times.
“Best Friends represents my ‘happy place’,” says Allie. “I wrote it when I was living in a sharehouse that had a pool and jacuzzi – the place was so nice we nicknamed it ‘the Resort’. All through the summer we’d invite our friends over for pool parties and barbecues. It was epic! It really felt like we were living the dream.”
The song’s themes around living a youthful, carefree and excessive lifestyle are fittingly characterized by none other than the queen of excessiveness herself, Marie Antoinette. Ditching her period costume to be transported to the 1960s for this special occasion we see what it’s like to attend a pool party fit for a queen – with cake and all!
