Following the release of her debut album, Australian songstress Starley has dropped the colourful music video for the LP's title track 'One Of One'.

The video was directed by Natasha Foster and Erin Fairs from Collider.

"When Starley approached us to work with her on ‘One Of One’ she mentioned she wanted something colourful," the duo share.

"As a directing duo, colour is our strong suit, so we created a surreal colour-blocked 'house' for Starley to live in.

"The action you see in the video is meant to evoke the feeling you are living in a house you may have once shared with a partner. It’s a bright, quirky take on a break-up song where the juxtaposition between the world and the lyrics creates an irreverence towards the situation."

The song discusses the struggle with personal inner demons and the subsequent loss of a relationship, while Starley aimed for the video to be an extension of that.

"With this video I wanted the feeling of absence to really be felt. We wanted to contrast that with bright colours because often when I feel down, outwardly it can seem the complete opposite," Starley says. "I cover up everything with a smile and numb myself with food comas and mindless activities."
