Galantis ft Little Mix & David Guetta 'Heartbreak Anthem' by Samuel Douek
Samuel Douek touches upon the pressures of fame and heartbreak in his promo for Galantis, featuring Little Mix and David Guetta.
The video for Heartbreak Anthem is backdropped against a sci-fi burlesque world, and evokes a message of self-acceptance and self-love, intertwined in a high-concept, cinematic idea.
The performance-focused visual is complemented by gorgeous styling and makeup, much like Douek's promo for Little Mix's Confetti, released just under a month ago.
The glitchy, futuristic aesthetic contemporises the traditional shapes and silhouettes of the burlesque world, and elevates the bold, vibrant direction of Little Mix's new era.
"The concept for Heartbreak Anthem was inspired by Angela Carter’s infamous 1984 novel Nights at the Circus, a magical realism feminist tale about freedom.
"Little Mix are the Winged Fatales, an all singing, all dancing trio who perform night after night to adoring crowds, whilst backstage they feel trapped and alone.
"As we move through the song they find happiness in their own skin alongside digital images of David Guetta and the Galantis Seafox - a symbol of liberation."
