Dashboard Confessional tugs at the heart-strings in newly-released music video for “Heart Beat Here”
Slowly coming out of hiatus after a decade wait, the indie rockers who make up Dashboard Confessional unleash another stunningly crafted music video for their song “Heart Beat Here,” after premiering their video for debut track “We Fight,” just three months prior.
“Heart Beat Here,” comes straight off of their newly-released LP Crooked Shadows, which dropped early February.
On talking about the latest album in a press statement singer-songwriter Chris Carrabba said:
“Every album is personal, But as this album was coming together, I realized, especially as the world’s political climate was rapidly changing, that ‘personal’ did not necessarily mean ‘mine’ – suddenly, ‘me’ became ‘we’ and that realization was empowering, comforting and terrifying all at once.”
The sentimental empowering visuals seen in “Heart Beat Here,” exudes the beautiful simplicity of falling in love.
The story unfolds with Carrabba standing alone strumming passionately on his guitar as transparent images project on the curtains surrounding him.
Along with the beat, his vocals pick up in a soberly tone creating an overwhelming sensation hard to ignore.
Some notable lyrics are:
“We found our way past our youthful fears And fought our way through the pain and tears And we drove our stakes in the place most dear And let our hearts. beat”
The video which is also kept classically black and white also pans over a happy couple, which is revealed to be Carrabba getting married.
Then the video shows him performing in the middle of a large crowd, as the scenes rotate back and forth it becomes clear that he is reminiscing on better times.
In celebration of the new album, Dashboard Confessional is in the middle of wrapping up a U.S. tour with their next stop being in Denver on Monday night.
