REYNA serve up a slice of love potion cake in ‘Heartbeat’ music video

They’re not that innocent.

Following the buzz generated by the release of their latest single ‘Heartbeat’, sister act REYNA have now unveiled the glitzy music video to support the bop-worthy number.

The track by the Milwaukee-based indie-pop sister duo made up of Victoriah and Hannah Gabriela Banuelos, was first released at the tail-end of last year – enough time to earn its much-deserved position on our top singles of the year list.

The visuals for ‘Heartbeat’ mark a first for the band in that it’s their debut music video. It’s also the first release of what is set to be an exciting year for the girls.

“For the video, we created a dark and delusional fantasy world where we tie down our lovers and feed them a love potion cake to symbolize our infatuation,” say Victoriah and Hannah.

“We got to put our Mexican culture in the spotlight”

Directed by Savannah Ziemann and Conor Tarnowski, the ‘Heartbeat’ video plays homage to the Banuelos sister’s heritage. “We got to put our Mexican culture in the spotlight and had so much fun decorating the set with conchas, prayer candles, Calaveras, etc.

“The “Blue Demon” luchador mask we used on one of the lovers is actually from our childhood and we got it at a Lucha Libre match in Mexico when we went with our Abuelo. To be able to eternalize that memory makes the video even more special.”

Already planned for 2019 is the forthcoming release of REYNA’s debut EP, while they have also due to release their first single via Universal Music.

Since the release of their debut single ‘Spill Your Colors’, the girls have garnered over 3 million combined streams on Spotify to date and have performed alongside the likes of CHVRCHES, BLEACHERS and Death Cab For Cutie.
