Troves aka Lani McDonagh is the Brighton-based singer making daydreamy electronic pop that makes us want to run away for a life of slow-motion adventure. With her delicate vocals sweetly complementing the single's soaring synths, escape to sunnier climes with the i-D premiere of new single, Love.

Directed by photographer and filmmaker Millicent Hailes, the sun-saturated music video starring her best friend and collaborator, model Nadia Lee, documents the highs and lows of summer loving. Scenes of cowboy boots and Cadillacs to a backdrop of desert dinosaurs and palm trees give way to an altogether darker mood of late-night drives and broken dreams; the summer is over and so is the summer romance. Love is complicated.
