Official "Masquerade" video by Lelia Broussard.
Video Directed by Molly Green and James Lefler.
Whether it be Lelia singing "Put your tail between your legs, Tell me what you really mean, You never say what you really mean" in her title track "Masquerade," or "Shoot for the Moon" about someone in your life holding you down, these are all familiar themes we can all attest to and Lelia taps those emotions perfectly. Just listen to "Armor on My Heart," a soulful ballad that highlights her vulnerable vocals but yet has the fiery resolve in her voice as she sings, "I don't cry too much these days, I don't have to lie when I say, Honey I don't love you anymore, I still wear my battle scars I've got in my heart." She also throws in some quirky songs like a "Satellite", about a lonely robot falling who falls in love and Hipster Bitch about, well....a hipster bitch!
