How do you get over heartache? Fall in love with yourself.
Every day we put on a mask and venture into the world. It's only when we wander home to be by ourselves do we wash off the perception we painted on for all to see. That's what The 1975's "Somebody Else" music video conveys in its chilling black and white opening scene – it features sound effects like a live-shot television show, symbolizing the world watching, applauding, and laughing at senseless things on cue.
When the Tim Mattia-directed video flips into color, lead singer Matt Healy picks up where the "A Change of Heart" video left off – crazily wandering the streets of London alone looking for solace. He gets beaten up at a bar and hooks up with a woman in the backseat of a car, but not all is what it seems. In the end, the only comfort he finds his from himself.
