WATCH: The 1975 Premiere “Robbers” Video
The 1975 are known for their cinematic music videos that each tell a unique story, and “Robbers” is no different. The video was inspired by singer Matt Healy’s love for Quentin Tarantino film, True Romance.
Of the video’s concept, Healy stated, “It’s the sentiment behind the film [True Romance] that appeals to me, the hopelessly romantic notion that two people can meet and instantly fall in love, an escape story where love is the highest law and conquers all against the odds. Characters like Bonnie and Clyde always appealed to me as a teenager – couples so intoxicated with one another that they fear nothing in the pursuit of the realization of each other, actions fueled by blind unconditional love. “Robbers” is an ode to those relationships. The type of relationship all humans long for. All or nothing.”
