Madison Margot “God Laughs” – Official Music Video
The multi-talented LA artist Madison Margot finally returns with a fresh instalment of her autobiographical pop on the cathartic “God Laughs” – her first release in over a year.
A blend of punching pop drums and delicious stadium-rock guitar licks, “God Laughs” shows off Madison’s rich vocal abilities in a beautiful, bittersweet tale of how to accept the changes life will undoubtedly have in store – all told through Madison’s signature, lyrical wordplay rooted in her insightful, classic songwriting: “When we make plans, God laughs” Madison shares in the gripping chorus.
Directed by the creative LA based Cassie Howell, the “God Laughs” music video is a scenic feast offering sublime cinematography for audiences to gorge on. Imaginatively exploring Madison’s personal lyrics, the “God Laughs” visuals start off in a glamorous fever dream before the track’s golden-hour guitar melodies wail away to scenes of a barren desert and rockstar hair flips.
Madison made the following statement about “God Laughs”: “I wrote this song about the ending of a beautiful relationship and learning to accept that some things in life are out of our control. You experience this whirlwind romance and have all of these plans for the future; then suddenly, fate intervenes, things change, and you’re forced into a whole different direction. The video is based around the lyric, “This is the age of maturity, walking out of fantasies so grand” and captures the emotion of the song so exquisitely – I am so proud of it! The making of this song and video was one of the most cathartic experiences I’ve ever had and I am so grateful I get to share it now."
“God Laughs” follows a period of intensity in Madison’s personal life, which included a relocation back to LA and leaving behind a new life she had begun to build in England; lyrically, “God Laughs” looks back at some of those moments and somewhat completes a trilogy of love-themed singles from Madison.
Starting with the cautious “If We Fall”, Madison then jumped into the romantic fairy-tale lyricism of “All My Wishes”, which heard Madison talk about the rush of feelings from falling deeper into a crush – and saw her profile in the US, Europe and Australia boosted via press support from the likes of Rolling Stone, Wonderland Magazine, Fizzy Magazine, FaceCulture, Lock Magazine and several others.
Now ready to close the chapter on a tough period of her life, Madison has plenty to look forward to in this new phase – from producing some of her most exciting and best music to date, as well as a steady flow of gigs on the LA live circuit and a growing social media presence, Madison Margot is sure to continue her rise on the pop scene.
