Pastiche shows the many shades of her personality in the ‘Bad Loser’ music video


As featured here last week, ‘Bad Loser’ is a Billie Eilish-esque pop-swerving track with a creeping beat from the Dublin 23-year-old pop artist Pastiche.

Having sold out Whelan’s last week, the artist is here with the video for the song which takes on the lyrics multi-faceted inner demons and personalities that we all embody and brings them to life in the clip directed by Louis Maxwell.

Watch the video for ‘Bad Loser’.

“I needed this video to capture the story of ‘Bad Loser’ and explain the reason I wrote it. The moment the song was in the demo stage I had a vision of a house of horrors where all of my demons and sides of my personalities came out to play, displayed to the world. Each character is a metaphor, every set is intentional, every colour used sheds a different light on me. I think once you watch the video you really understand the song to a whole new degree, just as I intended It to be enjoyed.”


“Working with Pastiche on the ‘Bad Loser’ video was an exciting creative challenge. Conveying the message and energy of the song was of the utmost importance to me. The team at Laragh House helped the filming process go very smoothly. Our assistant director Leah Roche and production manager Aliesha McCarthy kept us on track with our tight schedule. Pastiche gave all of her energy throughout every single take and it definitely shows on screen.”
