I couldn’t believe when this anticipated music video opened with a scenic round-the-mountain ride with Paul in the backseat of a convertible, and his two bandmates Jake Goss and Les Priest in the front.Screen Shot 2017-02-01 at 4.36.30 PMScreen Shot 2017-02-01 at 4.39.53 PMThat, running parallel to a pristine date, gorgeous people in a spacious house. Sure, it’s done beautifully, but did such a captivating song not deserve a less typical video??Screen Shot 2017-02-01 at 4.35.03 PMBut there’s a twist that gets even more twisted, and throughout I cannot help but smile at how awry it goes. It goes to glorious sh*t. While the antinarrative can be painful to watch, one shouldn’t expect less from the LA trio.

I had an opportunity to flip the script, to beautifully blindside the fan and the critic.” – PaulScreen Shot 2017-02-01 at 4.35.25 PM“I turned “ILYSB” into a tragedy of unhealthy obsession and unrequited love that ultimately led to psychotic behavior and total derailment.”Screen Shot 2017-02-01 at 4.33.28 PMTHANK YOU. We now know a classic LANY.
