Paige Valentine reveals stunning minimalist video performance of her new track ‘Fool’ directed by Perth filmmaker, Luna Laure + WA launch shows
“Another exceptional release from an artist whose career is just beginning to take off.” 
– Rolling Stone, Tyler Jenke“As a word of caution, we highly recommend that you sit down and listen to this track because ‘Fool’ will drop you to your knees with its beautiful and raw emotion. As ’70s soft-rock flourishes fill the air and create a dreamscape, Valentine’s stunning vocals leave us in complete awe. Her delicate delivery draws us inside her mind, where she reflects on a relationship that is fraying at the seams. As her voice softly intensifies, our knees buckle as her pain and doubt overwhelm us.” – The Revue

“It’s got this candle flame appeal as it burns slowly, flickers and eventually warms the whole room.” – Declan Byrne, triple j unearthed

“Valentine’s sophisticated and poetic song writing makes her a stand-out artist to keep a close eye on.” – Livewire AU

Last month, Perth based musician and wide-eyed dreamer Paige Valentine dropped her latest gut-wrenching single ‘Fool’ on unsuspecting hearts across the nation, earning a slew of praise from fans and industry alike. 2020’s proclaimed one-to-watch had already made waves with her lush debut single ‘Pure’, and her recent sister single only propelled Paige Valentine forward as a rising artist of Perth’s flourishing indie scene. Now, Paige is excited to reveal the stunning visual accompaniment to ‘Fool’ and give a glimpse of her captivating live presence in a new video filmed inside Fremantle’s stunning Naval store with local filmmaker, Luna Laure.

“Fool is the second opus of my collaboration with Paige. For this one, we wanted to explore showcasing Paige’s performative skills where her bravado and charisma shine bright on screen. Keeping the concept simple, we move around Paige in a dance of cat and mouse to finally reveal the space and decor. A real behind-the-scenes look at where musicians and filmmakers finally stand bare.” – Luna Laure, Director and Producer

“Fool was written as a continuation from Pure, I loved working with Laure to create the imagery for the first single and knew we could further develop something really sincere, powerful and vulnerable for Fool. Our main focus was to do something really stripped back that made the song the star.” – Paige Valentine

Written with collaborator Dylan Ollivierre, mixed by Myles Wootton and mastered by Greg Calbi, as a metaphor, ‘Fool’s tale of ascending from heartache and desperation is fitting of the world into which it is born. While the rest of the planet is still in lockdown, Paige’s home of Western Australia has already emerged on the other side of the tunnel, more or less unscathed. Live music has returned and with it, people are again able to bask in the electricity of being in an audience. As much as ‘Pure’ was Paige’s bookmark for isolation and lockdown, ‘Fool’ is the anthem of her emancipation from it and Paige is now preparing for her upcoming run of WA shows and her performance at Nannup Music Festival in 2021.
