Samuel Douek touches upon the pressures of fame and heartbreak in his promo for Galantis, featuring Little Mix and David Guetta. The video for Heartbreak Anthem is backdropped against a sci-fi burlesque world, and evokes a message of self-acceptance and self-love, intertwined in a high-concept, cinematic idea. The performance-focused visual is complemented by gorgeous styling and makeup, much like Douek's promo for Little Mix's Confetti, released just under a month ago. The glitchy, futuristic aesthetic contemporises the traditional shapes and silhouettes of the burlesque world, and elevates the bold, vibrant direction of Little Mix's new era.
