Lena & Nico Santos — “Better” (Official Video)
The clips starts off with the two singers in a farmland setting where they can also be seen driving a car. Several shots also show them in red and white outfits. The switch in the second verse brings new visual elements along, which nicely complement to the overall appearance of the music video.
The car crash seems to symbolize the end of a relationship. But instead of being all sad and devastated about it, the two singers shout it all out in the final chorus. The constant change of scenes underlines the tension that must’ve led to the downfall of the relationship.
Moreover, the approach behind the video is to showcase emotions from both partners that are going through a breakup. And they really do a great job by making it very clear what they’re going through. The visuals come into real effect combined with the lyrical content of the song. Thus, the video is a well-fitting addition to the collaboration by two of Germany’s most striving singer-songwriters.
