Lasgo - Alone

Alone - Lasgo |

I had a massive amount of choice for my Thursday Revisit music video review today. I chose this one, as I don't think I'll have much of a chance to review more Lasgo music videos in the future unless they do decide to make a comeback. So here we are, and I do not remember this song at all... Not only that but I don't even get the music video either, so confusing. Watch Evi Goffin walk around this cool building with a flashlight, as ghostly apparitions appear here and there, all the while she is followed by Peter Luts and Dave McCullen in the music video for "Alone".

Lasgo were a three-piece trance group from Belgium, consisting of Evi Goffin, Peter Luts, and Dave McCullen. They've had a few line-up changes over the years and will probably never make a comeback even if Evi Goffin and Dave McCullen have been seen performing under Lasgo's name together. Who knows what is happening? What we do know is that they haven't released a song since 2013, which is a seriously long time. This song never quite measured up to the success of "Something", but it was still a pretty big hit for the trio, even managing to hit number three in Belgium and Scotland, as well as number seven on the UK Singles Chart. It was written by Peter Luts and David Vervoort.

The music video is all set in this amazing cool building. It looks really haunting, so it's no surprise when ghostly apparitions appear - well that's what I think they are.

The opening scene sees Evi Goffin drawing and painting. She's creating images of her past with the guy she fell for. This guy isn't around anymore, and by the looks of the music video, he might not be alive - hence the ghosts.

As ghosts run around, the singer doesn't even act surprised, even when the champagne pours itself back into the bottle. Once again, she acts as if she's trying to find something or someone. Unfortunately, she never finds her lover and ends up back in the room with her drawings and Peter Luts and Dave McCullen appear behind her, just like she foretold in her drawing.

Overall, this music video could've been so much better. The cameraman clearly seemed more interested in playing around with camera angles and movements during the performance piece, that even their presence as they sang the song didn't impress. It's such a disappointing portrayal but gets kudos for the concept, which is relatable to some extent.
