VIDEO HIGHLIGHT: THE 1975 ‘HEART OUT’

the1975UK’s biggest new band, The 1975, reveal this rather charming video for ‘Heart Out’, the splendid and final single lifted from their massive debut album. The video for the track, a tale about problematic young love, it was written by Matthew Healy and directed by Matthew + Adam Powell…

Matthew explains: “I wanted to return to the classic performance scene. I love a good performance video and wanted to try my hand at creating something that represented my grandeur and slightly deluded sense of self, whilst also adhering to the simplistic rules of a performance. The video is about narcissism, belief and delusion in equal measure.”

He adds: “It represents how antiquated and romanticised visions of past and future shed a blazing light on the present and in turn provoke a self-analysis that soon shifts from the material to the ideological. It was in this state of excitement and obsession where the ‘Heart Out’ video was born. Obviously i can delve into the artistic vision of the video – what it means to me, the subtext and my own emotional investment within it – but in doing so I fear defacing what the video truly is about, at face value. It’s a bunch of kids who think they’re rockstars. And…they are”
