Forgetmyname has released the music video for her debut single, “Complex”. The video, which can be seen now below, depicts Forgetmyname’s Nicole Morales as a spurned lover watching helplessly while someone she cared about moves on with someone else, left wondering to herself “what can I do to make you feel this way?”.
The music video, conceived by Nicole with the help of her director Ryan Pham, Nicole explained consists of, “me driving a vintage car with red interior and pictured the girl in the back seat almost like the ghost of her getting with this person while I drove embedded in my head before I even finished the song. We kept that same idea throughout the video where im watching from a far and the viewer almost doesn’t know that these things happening all around me are just my imagination.”
Speaking of the moment of inspiration that led to the creation of “Complex”, Nicole writes “I was out driving and just being dramatic about a breakup and the lyrics just came. It was 5am and I had been driving and really just having that “Mr Brightside” by The Killers moment of just envisioning them with someone else and just destroying my head in mental images… Looking back at the song now It’s like a little trophy to me it was a difficult time and I was writing it as I was going through these things and I feel like it’s really hard to do that as a musician because you have to really find the head space to create in dealing with love and relationships and life. I got to say how I felt and it felt great to put those thoughts and insecurities and almost pettiness into paper and a song.”
