Fairfax, Virginia’s The Downtown Fiction has released their recent single’s music video for “Hepburn Shades,” featuring actress/model Matilda Lutz. The track is taken from the band’s recent album Alligator Tears.
The Downtown Fiction has premiered their video exclusively on Billboard.com here.
“We wanted to portray the song’s protagonist, played by Matilda Lutz, lost and locked out of her car, literally at odds with herself,” vocalist and guitarist Cameron Leahy said of the “Hepburn Shades” music video. “We shot the video in the desert, a backdrop for her desolation and desperation, that inner conflict. It was fun to watch her just let go and capture the moment in such an epic environment.”
“The song focuses on modern nihilism, the glorification of death and the struggle to find optimism in a world that thrives on a suffocating brand of irony, condemning anyone who really tries.”
