Watch No Rome and the 1975 channel boy bands in ‘Narcissist’

A couple of months after releasing his catchy song featuring fellow Dirty Hits label mates the 1975, No Rome has now debuted the track’s official music video. On Friday (Oct. 12), the Manila-based artist premiered the music video for “Narcissist.” The over-three-minute clip begins with Rome standing on a dark sound stage with brightly-colored lights illuminating him from behind as he sings the song.

The video primarily features footage of the musician singing the tune on the dark sound stage as well as reclining on a white throne in a white room with two Dalmatians at his side. The clip also features some cool boy band-esque synchronized dancing, the guys from the 1975 hanging around a sports car (and skating boarding in the background), and the 1975 frontman Matty Healy rocking some serious bright turquoise hair as he sings and dances with No Rome throughout the clip.

In an interview with Zane Lowe on his Beats 1 radio show, the musician revealed how the collaboration came to be.

“I made a demo and then I sent it over to Matty because we were listening to the stuff that I’ve been working on recently. I sent him over that track and he also fell in love with it the same way I did,” the musician explains to the host.

And he was like ‘oh, do you want to do something with it?’ and I was like “F— yeah!”

“Narcissist” is featured on No Rome’s RIP Indo Hisashi EP. The set of tunes was released back in August and is currently available for purchase here.

As for the 1975, the group’s much-anticipated new album, A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships, is due out Nov. 30. Originally set for an October release time frame, the four-piece surprised fans by announcing that its release had been moved back a month.

Since confirming its release, the group has debuted a total of four songs from the forthcoming record; “Give Yourself A Try,” “Love It If We Made It,” “TOOTIMETOOTIMETOOTIME,” and “Sincerity is Scary.”
