I mixed this together last night. Some videos and songs seem like they were meant for each other, and these two definitely fall into that category. The story mostly takes place outside of a city that resembles a futuristic Las Vegas, so visually it’s very tied to the name of the song. And thematically, it has a somber melody that suits the protagonist’s journey, which unravels itself a little at a time. The video itself even takes center stage during an unusually repetitive and otherwise boring moment in the song. It’s as if they composed it for this video, though they clearly didn’t.
