Heaven Let Me In

by Andrew MacGregor


Friendly Fires: “Heaven Let Me In” - 4 mins 20s

Over seven years after their sophomore album, ‘Pala', St Albans quartet Friendly Fires break cover with this nimble music video for ‘Heaven Let Me In'. Shot by director Bison, the promo cast ‘Mamma Mia 2' actor Jeremy Irvine as a clubber still in the throes of late-night ecstasy… and, erm, possibly another form of ecstasy.

As the track's own intoxicating vibes gather momentum, Irvine turns Canary Wharf and the surrounding thoroughfares into his personal after-party venue, with trippy visual flourishes and camera zooms amplifying his spaced-out commute. One hopes he finds his way home, though - he could do with a lie down.
