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.
