Steeped in romantic drama, Rainy Milo‘s newest video is something lovely to behold. Bookended by shots of a spinning roulette table, the new clip for her single “This Thing Of Ours” is the story of a couple caught up in a good thing.

But a strange unease lingers at the edge of every scene. “This Thing Of Ours” is a song about the stress of loving someone who makes their money on the wrong side of the law–it’s a warning that material things (“sales and film reels, dark liquor and long nails”) can’t hold someone down. The south London singer channels Erykah Badu’s “The Other Side of the Game” in a very real way, homing in a kind of paranoid joy.

All told Ms. Milo’s video is a feast for eyes and ears. Directed by Joseph Gonzalez, the clip features stunningly-composed sunset and nighttime shots fading into one another as the steady beat of “This Thing Of Ours” keeps the pace. Still, it’s the singer’s voice that steals the show, and first-time listeners will definitely want to check out Okayplayer’s expansive interview with the young R&B star. Watch the new video for “This Thing Of Ours” below and purchase the new, eponymous LP on iTunes today.
