ives says ‘Fallin’ for You’ is about the “disorienting” process of falling in love.

“Like water, love takes the form of the vessel that holds it,” she says. “Love is constantly evolving and
all becoming, it is isolating and unifying, blurry and opaque. Love is forever: what we are not.”

ives is an independent artist based in Auckland, New Zealand, who got her start in the creative industry as a dancer while studying full-time in Sydney.

This is where she fell into her love of creating and performing music. ives is passionate about the amalgamation of music and movement throughout her work, and feels as though one cannot exist without the other in her world.

The video was choreographed and produced by ives but featured a huge collaborative process, with 14 different people from makeup artists and colour graders to set designers.

The result is a colourful and ethereal experience to match ives’ smooth pop vocals.
