Directed by Andon’s long-time collaborator, Steven Bernard, the “Love Language” video brings the emotional lyrical journey to life. Stylized with lo-fi filters and saturated colors, the video follows Andon through the ups and downs of his search for someone to accept him fully. Casting his shadow on a projected reel of his memories, the video takes on a depth and forlorn reflection, hinting the relationship may already be in the past. With an already heart-wrenching, masterfully crafted song, Bernard’s subtle and artful video offers countless more reasons to keep listening to Andon’s “Love Language” song.
In typical Andon fashion, “Love Language” represents the artist’s seemingly effortless ability to adopt new genres. Over a cozy, flowing roll of guitar and percussion, Andon croons out the true longings of his heart. Impressively vulnerable, his lyrics express the desire to be seen and accepted fully in a relationship—not just appreciated for his talents, but supported through his shortcomings, too.
“I don’t need no space, even when I’m acting crazy.”
