Cat Velez - 9th Mar 2016

Tim Mattia follows up his recent video for The 1975's The Sound - a bold performance video about playing music in the face of scathing critique - with this tragic love story for American country singer Chris Stapleton's Fire Away. 

It sees a miserable man drinking himself sick at the bar, following the end of a relationship. And as flashbacks go from jovial and loving to conflictive and problem-ridden, the video starts to paint a picture of how depression and other emotional health issues can ruin relationships and eventually, take lives.
