Lyrically, the mysterious and brooding song investigates the secrets of attraction and the nature of shame or having a sense of guilt, while its old-school post-punk sound is reminiscent oF The Cure circa 17 Seconds and Faith, meets Interpol, Hapax, and Editors
The gorgeously shot black and white video for the song takes its inspiration from the Stephen Daldry film The Reader, as well as The Handmaid’s Tale, Fire in the Sky, and John Carpenter’s They Live.
Taking place in a library, the clip directed by Elio Nubes De Filippo is an intimate intermezzo between bookshelves, featuring the brilliant acting talent of Anna Flavia Castaldo and Antonio Dafe
