Elliot Lee’s ‘Rubies’ music video has the singer in a prom queen crown and a coffin and the song is a banger

American alt dark pop artist Elliot Lee released a music video today for her latest release.

Called ‘Rubies‘, the song is a typical Elliot Lee banger with the singer songwriter rapping and singing about the dangers of trying to change yourself just to fit in.

The new single was released via indie record label Photo Finish Records and, according to the musician, was a track that was originally written for a movie soundtrack but was then rejected.

The video features the singer wearing a prom queen crown, in a coffin and screaming about how she only likes her rubies red.

In other words, a pretty typical Elliot Lee music video (and that is a good thing!).

As the singer truly believes she not only expresses herself better through her music, but that music and the lyrics in it are often more relatable than conversation for many.

One comment Lee makes on her website about those lyrics I thought was telling and quite wonderful:

I think it might be a little sadistic but my favorite feeling in the whole world is when I play a new song of mine for my dad—who never pays attention to lyrics, by the way—and he thinks it’s some superficial pop song about being in love or whatever, and then I get to explain all of the lyrics to him and he ends up all choked up.

I like making people dance and cry at the same time.

Gotta love that, eh?

The dark music video for Elliot Lee’s ‘Rubies‘ was directed and edited by Mike Mazza.
