Toronto-based indie rockers Fast Romantics have unveiled the official music video for their latest single “Everybody’s Trying to Steal Your Heart” – the third cut from their critically-acclaimed sophomore LP American Love.
“The song is about a world where it feels like everyone and everything is designed to sell you something, to distract you from what’s important,” comments lead vocalist and lyricist Matthew Angus. “When in fact, all you’re actually trying to do is, find someone to love, maybe do something you’re proud of and live a good life.
Directed by Ryan Thompson and the band’s singer Matthew Angus, the video was shot and edited over the course of a week. “Ryan came up with an amazing idea, but it seemed completely impossible considering the time we had due to our touring schedule,” recalls Matthew. “We’re the sort of band that is always up for a good challenge and thankfully so was Ryan. We worked day and night on this thing, on very little sleep and dozens of pots of coffee. Thanks to his talents, positivity, and some kind of magic, we’ve come out the other end with something we’re all really proud of, something that I think tells the story of the song perfectly.”
