Saint Sister just released a new music video by the same director as Hozier's 'Take Me To Church'

It’ll make you nostalgic for lost love, even if you’ve always been a single cat lady.

YOU HAVE TO check out the beautiful new music video for Saint Sister’s single ‘Causing Trouble’.

The gorgeous scenes follow a pair of star-crossed lovers with have a magnetic connection. The melody is a haunting lullaby that complements the nostalgic lyrics of first love that didn’t withstand the growing pains of youth, but will always be there.

The video was directed by Brendan Canty: you’ll be familiar with his work as he was also the director behind Hozier’s phenomenal ‘Take Me To Church’ music video.

The soft colour palette of the video – full of dusty pink skies and fields of golden wheat – are reminiscent of slow and hazy summers in Ireland.

An amazing quality of the video is that it will speak to every Irish person, regardless of whether your first broken heart took place in a city or the country: the backdrop switches between Dublin train stations…

and country scenes of low rising purple mountains, where the only infrastructure are telephone masts.
