The 1976 has released a new music video for A Change Of Heart, destined to tug on your heart strings. Inspired by the 1970 film The Clowns, among a range of other things, the cinematic clip shows Matty Healy and a female companion dancing around a fair ground. Including references to the band’s song Robbers, in the same way that many of the song’s lyrics do, A Change Of Heart depicts the highs and lows of a relationship between these two characters. It is as heart-wrenching as it is beautiful.
Also keep an eye out for the ‘la poesie est dans la rue’ signage, a quote the band have included in several of their previous videos.
Matty Healy has since released a list of the many inspirations behind the video, which quite frankly, was pulled off flawlessly.
