James Slater directs a dreamy promo for Baby Queen's new track Dover Beach. 

Fittingly shot across picturesque seaside landscapes - in Dover, of course - the video takes viewers on trip through Bella Latham's psyche, where she is desperately trying to escape that certain someone, to no avail. "It's about being infatuated with somebody and seeing them everywhere you look," comments Baby Queen. 

Packed full of soft pastel colours and striking locations, the concept takes on a cinematic, romantic aesthetic with top-notch performances and memorable vignettes. It's certainly a departure from the spikier tone of BQ's previous videos.
