LADYGUNN – BECK PETE PULLS AN “APRIL FOOLS IN FEBRUARY”  



nbsp;The music video directed by Zoe Kraft & Beck Pete herself is actually quite funny because it has this underlying tongue-in-cheek attitude that -to me- represents having a sense of self-awareness while wallowing in a miserable time. It’s almost like a fun look-back at a not-so-fun moment in the past where you get bent out of shape and become a little too histrionic. I think Beck Pete demonstrates in the video a lot more than just her wonderful vocals, I think she also has some hidden acting chops that we got to see. If she has that same charisma and allure on stage, I can definitely see her enthralling huge live audiences. 

 

“April Fools in February” comes from a self-described tendency to learn life lessons the hard way, something that a lot of can relate to, and that’s why the sense of humor works so well in both the track and the music video, you sort of get used to laughing at yourself a lot when it keeps happening.

The music video was -presumably- shot in a single hotel and that certainly plays a part in the rather cheeky lyrics, and though rather simple it’s always kept entertaining by Beck’s rather charismatic presence and the way she acts out all of these emotions and states of mind. There’s an additional clever bit of visual storytelling communicated through the use of color and lights, where one stage is yellow and full of sadness and frustration and the other one is purple, putting on a front while trying to drown the sorrows. 

 

Ultimately, both the song and the music video are about finally getting the punchline to a very sour and cruel joke that Beck felt was played on her. All through her life she thought love was the only thing necessary to keep a relationship afloat, unfortunately, after a strongly-bonded long-distance relationship collapsed on her, she realized that there’s a lot more to it. Ain’t life funny like that? Anyways, she turns her heartbreak on its head and then on herself, a prank that she gets to laugh at alongside her faithful audience.
