“I found Patrick McPheron, the director, on YouTube! I was immediately struck by his musicality and his eerie aesthetic. I love it when you come across a video that is so compelling that you have to watch it until the end. How rare! I reached out to McPheron through Instagram (@interiorstate) and asked him if he wanted to do a few videos for me. This is one of a couple. I love the juxtaposition of this video….how prim and proper these couples are set against a song about betrayal. It’s very Patrick.” – Vanessa Carlton
