Luke Bather - 13th Mar 2017

Linkin Park's Chester Bennington & Kiiara face opposing sides of themselves in Tim Mattia's video for Heavy.

The desaturated clip centres on an addiction support group which both singers are attending, but we also witness them facing their inner demons and personal struggles in a much more literal sense. Chester and Kiiara spend the video arguing with and running away from themselves, each having a second physical presence in the room (thanks in no small part to body doubles and clever framing).

The short clip is a gloomy portrayal of a part of recovery that's usually unseen and it's only through mutual support that they start to overcome themselves.
