"Better" is a super effective video, both in terms of the narrative in which Meghan Trainor plays the granddaughter of an alcoholic — played by Beau Bridges, btw — and in making sure you know for sure that Ms. Trainor is about way more than that bass.
1975's Matt Healy washes off his "A Change Of Heart" make-up and decides to address his remaining loneliness with a nighttime walkabout that descends into sex and violence. Or, at least he imagines it does.
This would have also been a fantastic video for Springsteen's "County Fair" or even "Tunnel Of Love," and let me assure you: That's a compliment (even if it exposes my heart as old, suburban, sentimental, etc, etc.)
"A Change Of Heart" has 1975 frontman Matty Healy as a sad, silent-film clown who finds love on magically epic night of love and dance at the traveling carnival.
Chris Stapleton takes a back seat here, instead focusing on the dangers of not recognizing poor mental health in someone. Actor Ben Foster, advocate for The Campaign to Change Direction, stars in this clip.
1975 in a glass box feels a little bit like that Battles video, but then a "discerning" crowd shows up to gawk and judge — complete with titles illuminating choice bon mots like, "They're essentially making robotic Huey Lewis tunes" and worse. But, don't cry for 1975. They (a) don't give a fuck, and (b) realize that their judgers are just as on display as they are.
The coming of age "best friend = best lover" tale that began in "Wild" enters a complicated new phase in this sequel, as family and small town pressures threaten to turn their passionate realization into nothing more than a youthful indiscretion.
“WILD,” listed as Part 1 of his “Blue Neighborhood” trilogy, is Australian superman Troye Sivan’s second foray into videos. Its ending is likely to cause a stir, as it reveals an aspect of being gay that happens to some people who grow up as friends, at first.
If you know anything about castles made of sand, then you know the manic and passionate love affair here will eventually crumble into the sea, which is essentially what happens in heartbreaking fashion.
