Brooklyn-based musician Alex Toth has released his new single, Juliette, which stars Stranger Things actress Maya Hawke in the video.
The song, arriving as the first release since Tōth’s breakthrough debut album Practice Magic And Seek Professional Help When Necessary, was initially written for the film Juliet, Naked, starring Ethan Hawke, Maya’s father.
In a coincidental turn of events, Maya took the story full circle when she decided to team up with Tōth on the video which was created by Jen Goma and Christian Peslak.
Continuing the theme of heartbreak established in his debut album, Tōth’s material sees him honouring and respecting an ex-lover in an attempt to avoid a stereotypically bitter tale of events: “You’re the most beautiful human I’ve ever met,” he sings with his now-familiar lo-fi indie production.
Tōth recalls the advice of a yogi friend as it relates to the track: “We need to stop looking at every ended or changed relationship as a failure.”
