HAERTS’ Highlight Raw Love In Their “Giving Up” Video: Idolator Premiere

After the release of their stellar self-titled debut LPHAERTS are following up with a video for their new single “Giving Up” — and today (October 30) we at Idolator are bringing you the premiere! Directed by Austin Peters, the black+white clip is a display of true love in its most organic form.

It focuses on various couples of all ages and backgrounds, as they passionately kiss each other and start a rave while HAERTS give their own emotive performance throughout. The imagery is all heightened by the tune’s pulsating rhythms and soaring vocals by lead singer Nini Fabi. The video ends beautifully, with dozens of flower petals circling around the band and the couples.
