Troye Sivan’s thoughts wander off when he sees the handsome beach bar tender. What could have become a saccharine music video gets a rather gruesome twist. It is a sun-drenched day by the sea and in the Australian singer’s thoughts.
Director Emma Westenberg chose (as in her previous videos for Janelle Monáe, clinching her a Grammy nomination, and Anouk) a distinct colour palette, red dominating this time. The red of the blood ruthlessly squeezed from the heart of the popstar who sensually stares into the lens, before being left alone on his beach towel, after all.
