The idea of the artist and their muse is a time-worn concept in music, typically portrayed as the shaggy-haired musician writing a love (or lust) song about a woman on his guitar. But what happens when the artist and the muse are interchangeable? When the artists serve as each others' muse and are the antithesis to the hypermasculine stereotype? These concepts, along with gender identities, love, success and just enough lust are explored on rising artist Rae Isla's premier music video, "Just Because," now on rotation via MTV Latin America.
Earmilk had the pleasure of catching up with the unsigned artist and learning more about the process behind "Just Because", which was produced completely independent of any label support, as well as videos' central relationship.
