Former Vampire Weekend member Rostam Batmanglij released a new video for his single, "Gravity Don't Pull Me". In an interview with NPR, Batmanglij said the song and video are about a boy who broke his heart.
"I hope there's something bigger that lives between all those things interacting with each other," he said. "For me, the idea of writing a song, recording it, making a video -- it's like, you go around the moon and you come back. You accomplish everything there was to accomplish. It feels like telling the whole story."
The video shows two boys dancing in and out of sync with each other, reflecting the song's lyrics. Batmanglij was inspired by the symmetry of the Persian rugs his parents owned and incorporated it into the video.
