Singer-songwriter Corook is blessing us with the queer, coming-of-age love story we've always wanted in the new music video for her song "your mom."
Serving up a bunch of '80s teen movie vibes, the music video for the new track tells a queer tale as old as time, as a young woman (played by the artist herself) sneaks into her girlfriend's house in the middle of the night to spend time with her — despite her girlfriend's mother not knowing.
While Corook is having a lot of fun with her girlfriend, having some laughs and dancing around the kitchen, the fun doesn't last too long, as the mother character keeps checking up on her daughter, cutting Corook's time with her short. There's even a scene where Corook literally gets pushed back into the closet to avoid being caught by the mother. It's an emotional story that many queer people who have dated/been with others who aren't out of the closet yet can definitely relate to.
"I wrote this song when I was dating a girl in the closet," Corook says about crafting "your mom" and the genesis of the song. "I was really fortunate to have already come out so I wanted to extend support if she wanted it, as well as the time and space to make her own decisions about it. I think the line 'You don't have to tell your mom about me' can relate to so many couples in that giddy beginning, living in their little love bubble and not wanting to pop it too soon. I hope this song gives people the patience, love, and compassion that they truly deserve during the coming out process."
