Last Friday, The Downtown Fiction premiered the music video for their latest single “Hepburn Shades” via Billboard. The track features on the band’s latest release Alligator Tears, a self-produced EP that came out earlier this year. The videoclip stars Matilda Lutz as she is locked outside of her car in the desert outside of L.A.
“For the “Hepburn Shades” music video, we wanted to portray the song’s protagonist, played by Matilda Lutz, lost and locked out of her car, literally at odds with herself. The song focuses on modern nihilism, the glorification of death and the struggle to find optimism in a world that thrives on a suffocating brand of irony, condemning anyone who really tries. We shot the video in the desert, a backdrop for her desolation and desperation, that inner conflict. It was fun to watch her just let go and capture the moment in such an epic environment.”
