Ellie Goulding’s ‘Army’ Video Is What Real Female Friendship Looks Like

This is how you turn your friendship into art.

Amid the oversaturation of #squadgoals in the past year, Ellie Goulding comes through on Thursday (Jan. 14) and gives us the video for “Army,” a love song to her best friend, Hannah. When you watch the video for the Delirium track, there’s something that seems so genuine, especially given the conversation around authenticity and female friendship we’ve been having.

As fans, we’re observers. We don’t really know what goes on behind the scenes. It’s hard to envision the ~real lives~ in those highly publicized Instagram friendships, but with “Army,” we can see a little bit of ourselves in Ellie and Hannah, who spend much of the video chuckling over a joke known only to them.
