Lost My Faith

by Andrew MacGregor

Anaïs: “Lost My Faith” - 3 mins 54s

An uptempo rhythm belies the pain at the heart of ‘Lost My Faith' by London-based singer Anaïs, as she subtly draws listeners into a realm of racism, repercussions, and broken promises. Her plaintive cries of "It will never happen again…/They tell the lie" take aim at anonymous figures who leave her on the brink.

This internal strife is met by director Dumas Haddad's enigmatic promo, which leaps between a family scene and a young man's wide-eyed trek through a cornfield. Part fever dream, part family drama, it's a moody yet attractive spin on contemporary themes and shared anguish.
