It’s been two months since FLETCHER released her stellar debut EP, you ruined new york city for me, but its vulnerable songs still sting with every listen. Case in point: “All Love,” one of that project’s standout tracks, received the visual treatment on Tuesday (October 29), and it should come with a trigger warning for anyone who’s experienced the torment of unexpectedly running into an ex.
That’s exactly what happens to the “Undrunk” hitmaker in the Grant Spanier-directed vid, which illustrates a literal retelling of the song’s lyrics. “When you walk in the bar with someone holding hands / Introduce me to her, say I’m just an old friend / And you ask how I’ve been / I say I’m doing fine but I’m fucking lying,” the 25-year-old admits, as we see her cry glittery tears à la Euphoria. Some more conceptual shots — of butterflies, burning flowers, and shattered disco balls — fill out the vid, which comes to a rain-soaked climax when FLETCHER finally works up the courage to confront her ex. See how that plays out in the vid below.
In a statement about her new video, FLETCHER said, “I really wanted to capture the feeling of seeing your ex for the first time with someone new. It’s a mix of butterflies, emptiness, your heart sinking and your stomach on fire all at the same time. At least that’s what it felt like for me. I hated the feeling, but pretended like it was all love.”
The “All Love” video comes after FLETCHER’s recent Spotify Singles session, for which she recorded a cover of Post Malone’s “I Fall Apart.” Check that out right here.
