Pain Goes Away // Refs

Refs have made one of my favorite songs of the year with ‘Pain Goes Away’, and now it has an amusing new music video. Much like the narrative of the song itself, the video looks at a couple who have pretty differing views on their relationship – oh, and one of those two “people” is actually a mannequin. Watch the video above, and read what the band have to say about the Sam Hammad-directed video below:

“The song is about being in love with someone, who may not love you back. For the video, we wanted to do something simple, based around the concept of being always connected but feeling isolated. In New York, it’s easy to feel that way. There’s a humor to it, but there is also something about the mannequin that’s evocative in the context of modern city life.”
