We last heard from the pop duo Fionn in July when they released their nostalgic single “Take Me Back”. The track was Fionn’s first release since their Candid constellations EP in May, which pushed girls into bolder new territory. As we heard this bolder and more dynamic new sound unfold throughout the song, we also heard the girls conjure up memories of an old relationship, romanticizing some moments. You could feel their desire to go back in time at those times, a feeling that is also felt on Fionn’s latest single “I Won’t Lie”.
On “I Won’t Lie”, Fionn addresses the strange feeling of wanting to get back together with someone, but also of having nothing to do with that person anymore. To fluid beats and hidden riffs, Fionn sings about the instability they feel and the urge to try things again. Towards the end of the track, R&B artist Mauvey arrives and gives us the ex’s point of view. He raps about the ups and downs of the relationship, but ultimately wants to know where things stand. You can check it out below.
Explaining the concept of the clip, Fionn shares,
âThe video takes place at a party that doesn’t feel right. Time seems frozen and no one is having fun. It was meant to portray the feeling of numbness that comes with trying to do normal things after experiencing a loss. The second verse shows Brianne that she is arguing with a lover’s ghost (Mauvey) and ends up pushing him away, trying to get the memory out of his head. Meanwhile, snapshots of us underwater in a purple pool are effortlessly incorporated to portray the feeling of drowning in these complex emotions.“
Mauvey also comments,
âOne moment that I will never forget is on the set of the music video for ‘I Won’t Lie’. It was late, we were running out of time, the ladies had already committed on the last shot in an outdoor pool (unheated pool), they entered as if nothing had happened, that’s when I knew that I had to step up my game.“
You can listen to âI Won’t Lieâ on platforms like Spotify and Apple Music.
