If you didn’t know, Conan Gray dropped the video for ‘Heather,’ and fans are losing it. In the best way. The video feels so personal and intimate, watching Conan with so much vulnerability. It’s as if we were just watching a moment of his life, where he went through a lot and just wished he were someone else. It’s very soft and delicate, fitting to his vocals moving smoothly over the track.
Watch the video below and see what we mean!
It’s not just a song and music video that feels personal, it’s something true for Conan as it was based on his real-life experiences.
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.
He transforms in the music video, to become everything he wanted to be that he saw in Heather. Some fans take that meaning and apply it to their own life, Heather representing the person you want to be, that you can be. Overall, the video is stunning and we may have watched it ten times already. We mean, how could you not when it’s so beautiful? Not just the vibes, but him becoming the person he wanted to be is beautiful.
