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.That, 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??But 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.
“It would have been the least creative, most predictable thing in the world to run thru a field and fly down the PCH in a convertible with the “love of my life” … hand-in-hand, wind-in-hair. I had an opportunity to flip the script, to beautifully blindside the fan and the critic.” – Paul“I turned “ILYSB” into a tragedy of unhealthy obsession and unrequited love that ultimately led to psychotic behavior and total derailment.”THANK YOU. We now know a classic LANY.
