Troye Sivan’s music video for “Happy Little Pill” debuted today, and it’s everything I expected it to be – in a good way.
The YouTube sensation from Australia channels his inner Lana Del Rey in the Grey Ghost-directed clip off his EP “TRXYE.” What I mean is you need to be in a mood.
In the video, Sivan stares longingly into the camera behind a purple haze, stares outside the window drinking a cocktail, stares at an owl flying towards him, the stars, a television etc. If I saw him looking at me across the street like this I’m not sure I’d feel safe.
There’s a love story in the narration, but it’s unclear what it has to do with happy little pills. Are they high? Is it a love triangle? And why is he laying down in a soccer field?

It’s a fitting video, so I’ll give it a thumbs up. See it here:
