Alice Glass has released a lo-fi video for “Forgiveness”.
Taken from last year’s debut solo EP Without Love, “Forgiveness” is an industrial-pop thumper driven by a chugging electronic bassline. Its video, directed by Lindsey Mann, has a grainy horrorcore aesthetic and sees Glass writing the song’s lyrics in lipstick on mirrors.
“This song is about rejecting the idea of forgiveness,” Glass says in a statement. “Forgiveness isn’t always a moral act, the way some religions portray it. Sometimes forgiveness can be exploitative or even predatory, especially when people use it as a means to guilt someone rather than heal them. When forgiveness is used to create a false sense of superiority it is a toxic act.”
