Vance Joy Unveils New Video ‘Play With Fire’

Melbourne’s own Vance Joy has just unveiled the latest single from his much-loved debut EP, God Loves You When You’re Dancing, titled Play With Fire and has accompanied the new release with a gorgeous new video, filmed on the scenic Great Ocean Road.

The cinematic video was inspired by the lyrics of the track, and deals with a man attempting to escape the emotional bonds of a crumbling relationship to no avail, unable to unbind himself from the emotional tether and seeing visions of his paramour everywhere he looks.

Meanwhile, the track itself was inspired by a house-sitting experience Vance enjoyed, accompanied by an old piano. “I was house-sitting this beautiful house and they had a beautiful antique piano. I was sitting there playing day after day and this song came along,” he said.

Readers can check out the clip for Play With Fire, shooting for which took place over three days on “an extremley busy single lane arterial road” and an apartment building in Prahran, below.
