Sarah Botelho, better known by her stage name POESY, has returned with the stunning new music video to accompany her pop-rock belter of a tune, ‘Diamonds’. Based around the themes of inner turmoil and escaping those horrid, dark recesses of your own mind, the ‘Diamonds’ music video combines powerful, metaphorical imagery with contrasting colours and a clever but easy-to-follow narrative.
“Diamonds is at its core, a song about experiencing a dark time and trying to drag yourself through to the other side. It’s about the pressure you put on yourself that leaves you with dark inner turmoil. I’ve dragged myself out of that countless times so I hope Diamonds can do that for someone else. I called it Diamonds because they’re a substance that is made under huge amounts of pressure, but they’re also so valuable – just like we are. So be gentle with yourself…”

Gloriously encompassed in dark, mysterious and alluring melodies, ‘Diamonds’ is the intense, raw, glistening pop-rock anthem we have all been waiting for, with a wonderfully ominous, suspense-filled music video to match. Within it, POESY acts as opposing sides of her troubled psyche; the good versus evil and the light versus the darkness, both wandering the vast expanse of the forest attempting to either avoid or overwhelm the other, ultimately seeking dominion over its oppressor. Directed by Kate Harrison, the ‘Diamonds’ music video perfectly encompasses both POESY’s witchy and whimsical style and her boundless creativity.
