Film At 11: Lightyear

There’s something authoritative about Lauren Zettler and her electro-pop Lightyear. On “It Beats,” she takes on the not-so-simple topic of the human heart with lyrics like “my heart will leave you lonely” and mixes it with feelings of angst and desperation for change. The song’s video explores the territories of dark and light through black-and-white footage mostly focusing on circling Zettler while she hits the ivories. Make sure to catch the stop-action shots and the use of aluminum foil while the interjecting piano keys and driving guitar riffs get heavier and more climactic. “It Beats” is from Lightyear’s self-released debut EP, All Of The Miles.
