Ellie Burke - Filtered Reality


It’s another RGM video premiere, today we have the new video from Ellie Burke and her new video Filtered Reality. 

Here are a few words about the video, enjoy!👊

Liverpool-based singer-songwriter Ellie fuses over the writing and lyrical style of soft pop with lo-fi beats to create her unique sound, drawing influences from the likes of Sasha Sloan and Olivia Dean.

‘Filtered Reality’ takes you into Ellie’s world and insecurities caused by social media and how it has affected her in a negative way, from the filtered images, stories, and narratives that lead to unrealistic expectations and lifestyles.

She wrote Filtered Reality as part of her university dissertation to raise awareness about the negative impact of social media.

She took a specific approach by researching individual accounts of people who have suffered and are still suffering from mental health problems due to cyberbullying and comparison to filtered realities portrayed online.

“One girl spoke about how social media exasperated her eating disorder due to the negative content surrounding her disorder that was easily accessible. Another account discussed how cyberbullying ruined their mental health and wellbeing.

One influencer spoke about how she suffered with anxiety due to Instagram because she was sharing her life in unhealthy ways, ways that weren’t the real her, and people were influenced by her unrealistic lifestyle. This is where her idea for ‘Filtered Reality’ came from.”
