Video: Siaira Shawn – ‘Lamb’


After premiering the song last week, newcomer Siaira Shawn returns with the music video for her new single “Lamb.”

The Bay Area native brings the ethereal track to life with a visually creative piece directed by Alexis Casson.

Seen walking through a field of tall grass and purple flowers, Siaira’s sultry vocals glide over the track as she lets out her pain and distrust over an unfaithful lover.
