Home is where the heartbreak is.
Lissie recently decided to make 'Further Away (Romance Police)' her new single, and was faced with the need for a new video.
Working with Ben Chappell, the American singer decided to try something autobiographical. After all, if Lissie can place so much of herself in her material then why not do the same with a video?
Returning to her hometown of Rock Island, Illinois the singer re-visited some extremely personal landmarks. "I wanted to shoot the video at home because that’s where my earliest memories of heartache come from" she explains. "I wanted someone so bad who didn’t want me back and that experience kind of shaped my approach to relationships for years to come. The song is a cautionary tale to avoid those kinds of heartbreakers so it felt right to go home and revisit that time."
Beautifully shot, you can watch the 'Further Away (Romance Police)' video on Clash now.
