Conan Gray – “Heather” music video
“I still remember the third of December, me in your sweater. You said it looked better on me than it did you. Only if you knew, how much I liked you. But I watch your eyes as she walks by. What a sight for sore eyes, brighter than a blue sky. She’s got you mesmerized while I die.” – lyrics
‘Heather’ tells a heartfelt tale of a young guy who has a secret crush on a special person in his life. But his crush adores a young, angelic, and pretty girl named Heather. Therefore, the guy is envious of Heather and wants to be her. Also, he wishes she was dead and out of the picture. Later, he dies inside as he watches his love interest and Heather holding hands.
The Dillon Matthew- and Conan Gray-directed music video builds towards a transformative climax that proves provocative and thought-provoking. Tight and vulnerable closeups of the artist capture the tension between the soft guitar and his confessional vocals. All building to the video’s finale, revealing a surprise full-circle moment to fans.
“I wish I were Heather.”
“When I was in high school, I had a crush on the same one person all four years. But that one person did not love me back. Instead, my crush liked a girl named Heather. Heather was gentle and beautiful, inside and out. She was warm like a summer day and had so many friends. She was soft and so easily lovable—everything I am not. The ‘Heather’ video is my way of becoming all of the things that I envy about Heather. I would’ve done anything to be like her. Wear the right pretty clothes and act the right effortless way. Reject all the things that made me who I am. Anything to be loved back by the person I loved. Anything to be their first choice. The slow transformation throughout the video was made to represent the feminine and masculine traits I constantly switched between in order to become who I knew my crush would like. Somebody soft and sweet. Somebody like Heather.” – Conan Gray stated
