The Music Video
The music video released on July 29, 2016, won hearts with its simplicity. Although it is simple yet it is reminiscent and meaningful. Closer’s video features two models who were a couple in actual life (Jordan Wright and Alyssa Lynch). This was a lyrical video with stunning visuals.
The video depicts that the couple is going through a rough patch. However, they are still together. They are unaware that both of them are still madly in love with each other. Both are dressed casually, and the video is set in summertime.
The video begins with the couple sitting together on a living room couch. Both are seeing their Polaroids. They are reminiscing the good times they had. The time feels still and stagnant. In a turn of events, the video takes you on a road trip with the couple in an SUV.
The couple romances and spend time on the beach and hills. Both of them are seen kissing passionately. It is just as if they have taken a trip down memory lane. On their trip, they are clicking Polaroids and just making memories.
As the video draws close to the end, both of them come out of their memories. They make out on the bed. The video concludes with the couple kissing on the SUV. The director (Rory Cramer) says cut, but the couple does not stop kissing. The director goes like, “Seriously! That happens when you work with couples. We are not making a porno here”.
In the musical essence, Closer is a true pop track and future bass. Moreover, it rocks with a retro-themed synthesizer incorporated in the chorus. This makes it perfect for the vocals of Halsey and Alex Pall.
Billboard wrote about Closer, “Closer captures the millennial zeitgeist in brilliantly infectious fashion.”
