Watch The 1975 Bleed All Over The Place In The ‘Robbers’ Video

Bonnie and Clyde. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Matthew Healy and… whatever this woman’s name is. The 1975 are aiming to go down in the annals of crime-duo history in their new video for “Robbers,” off of their self-titled debut.

“I got really obsessed with the idea behind Patricia Arquette’s character in ‘True Romance’ when I was about 18,” Healy said of the video’s origins.

“That craving for the bad boy in that film, it’s so sexualized,” he added. “It was something I was obsessed with. ‘Robbers’ is about a heist that goes wrong — I suppose you can read it as a metaphor — and a girl who’s obsessed with her professional killer boyfriend. It’s a romantic ideal.”

Yup. Love is, indeed, a battlefield. Check it out.
