The video for ‘Moody’ has arrived this week and features both Taylor and Green, who play a couple whose once-happy relationship is now slowly falling apart.

“I’ve always wanted to make a version of Rihanna’s ‘We Found Love’, but a more realistic representation of a relationship,” Taylor said in a statement about the clip, which you can see below.

“Music video tropes are so fun and easy to execute and I’ve spent a lifetime trying to avoid them, but I wondered what happens if I just indulge in them.”

Taylor added: “There is nothing more inevitable and sad as the slow demise of passion and enthusiasm for each other in a relationship. I personally avoid it happening these days, the way you become enemies. It’s age old heteronormative bullshit. The ‘ball and chain’ jokes.

“Fuck that… I wanted to play on that idea, highlight how boring and overdone it is.”

Self Esteem will set out on a UK tour in November ahead of another set of live dates in February and March 2022 – you can see the dates for the latter below.
