Our latest music video obsession c/o Hozier and Natalie Dormer
Hozier is finally taking us somewhere other than church.
Just yesterday, Hozier released a music video for his slinkiest tune to date, “Someone New.” But before you get too involved in your inevitable shoulder-shrug dancing, you may want to keep your eyes on the screen. The music video features none other than Game of Thrones’ /The Hunger Games’ Natalie Dormer! If that exclamation point didn’t give it away, we totally love her and her half-shaved hair styling ways.
The video, directed by Dormer’s fiance, Anthony Byrne, features Dormer combing the streets for a lover, resulting in quite a few impromptu make out sessions and a number of vivid fantasies. It matches the song’s beautifully complicated sentiment of finding love (or lack thereof) in all the wrong places. I think it’s fair to mention that Dormer’s dark sensuality adds a layer of intrigue to the otherwise sing-songy track.
Even though Hozier and Dormer don’t appear in the same scenes, Hozier did share this happy snap on his Twitter last Saturday.
Too much amazing-ness for one photo and we love imagining the two of them as brand new besties.
“Someone New” is Hozier’s latest off of his self-titled album, which dropped last fall. Catch the video in all its gritty goodness, below:
