Luke Bather - 1st Nov 2016

Chainsmokers and Halsey get up close and personal in Dano Cerny's video for 'Closer'.

Following a former couple who run into each other at a party, we revisit their history as they try to have a good time without really acknowledging one another. Anyone who's been in that situation knows that's never exactly the easiest thing to do.

The subtle colour contrasts between past and present really help to sell a bittersweet story, and Halsey's expression in the final shot is potentially heartbreaking.
