Soko's Baby Indigo Makes On-Camera Debut in Her 'Being Sad Is Not A Crime' Video!

Soko is kicking off 2020 by dropping her new song “Being Sad Is Not a Crime” and the accompanying music video features her baby Indigo Blue‘s on-camera debut!

The video was directed by Soko‘s friend Gilbert Trejo and it was shot at the historic Bob Baker Marionette Theater in Los Angeles. The video explores the societal pressure to always put on a happy face and highlights the struggles of being a working mother and the lack of adequate support systems.

“It was my first time not directing my own music video and Gilbert made it an easy transition every step of the way. I had wanted to create something at the Bob Baker Marionette Theater for a long, long time, and wrote the entire treatment hoping they would let us shoot there! It was an important video for me: tackling the struggles between having to keep working feeling like a puppet, but also just wanting to be a mum and take a break for a second,” she said in a statement.

Soko also commented on Indigo making his on-camera debut.

“It was a very special moment captured by a very special friend: Alexis Zabe (Florida Project). He was the director of photography on the video, filming Indigo with so much love. Our babies are the same age and friends since the womb, so it felt very natural and safe and magical to do this project all together,” she said.

“Being Sad Is Not a Crime” will be featured on Soko‘s third album, to be released in Spring via Because/Babycat Records.
