ADDISON GRACE - WHITE LIE

Addison Grace’s song "White Lie" is one of those songs that before you know it, it’ll be stuck in your head, and you will be playing it on loop. The lyrics are relatable and cut deep but are sung in such a way that the song manages to be upbeat and high energy at the same time. One of my favorite things about their music video for "White Lie" is how their emotions are shown through the use of close-up angles with a fisheye lens, their facial expressions and hand gestures as well as the overall pacing and trippy effects in the video. The visuals and colors chosen are pleasing to the eye and give off an early 2000s energy to it. They were radiating confidence as they sang the lyrics “I don’t like you” and at a certain point in the song, you can feel the sadness of how they wish the person they used to love was actually genuine.

Overall, I feel like Addison Grace’s song is definitely going to connect with the younger generations and even help encourage them to get away from fake friends instead of putting up with them.  If anything, I would have liked to see how the video would have played out if they had someone in it representing the people pleaser they have grown to dislike.
