The video for Låpsley's Love Is Blind addresses the way in which mental illness can be a barrier to human relationships and communication. It's also about the feeling of emptiness that comes when you've tried everything to keep a relationship together, but you have reached the point of exhaustion. Cherise Payne worked closely with Låpsley who came up with the idea for the video.
