If you miss going outside and dancing in the sunlight during festival season, does indie pop duo Reyna have an anthem for you.

Reyna have unveiled their new music video for "Coachella," premiering exclusively on Billboard today (April 17). It's a funky breakup track where sisters Vic and Gab Bañuelos comb through a past relationship that happened to end right around the same time as the annual music festival. "We were so happy at Coachella," they sing, remembering when everything was fine and good. (You know, the spring of 2019.) "I used to love you, but now we're saying sorry."

The video sees the duo standing in front of projection screens as 1960s-era clips play over them, with projection light cast across their faces. As they sing through their heartbroken anthem, the clips suddenly come to a halt, as the classic colored bars appear across the duo's faces.

In a statement to Billboard about the song, Vic Bañuelos says that she did, in fact, go through a breakup after the duo attended Coachella in 2019. "Ever since we went to Coachella last year, Gab and I always say to ourselves, 'We were so happy at Coachella,' so it kinda just became an inside joke between us," she says. "Coachella reminds me of that time where [my partner and I] were trying to be okay and stay together but we didn’t make it. It’s bittersweet."

Coachella might not be happening this weekend, but you can still catch a vibe with Reyna's new video below.
