Rising artist Trevor Daniel isn’t “Falling” off the Billboard Hot 100 chart anytime soon, as his top 40 hit got the music video treatment Wednesday (Jan. 15), which portrays his lowest point after a breakup.
With viral TikTok videos to thank for the song’s resurgence after its late 2018 release, the official video for “Falling” beautifully captures Daniel hitching a ride around California canyons, sitting atop a hill of rocks, reading a book in the middle of the water and standing upside down on a mountain. The scenic imagery is further tormented by five dancing waiters who artfully depict the singer’s post-breakup sadness with their choppy, yet harmonized choreography.
“Think I’m out of my mind, ’cause I can’t get enough/ Only one that I give my time, ’cause I got eyes for ya/ Might make an exception for ya, ’cause I been feelin’ ya/ Think I might be out of my mind, I think that you’re the one,” he drones about his ex in the bridge as he stays put in a sunken position for the majority of the clip.
The electronic/R&B melody floats above the beauty around him, masking the ugliness of feeling attached to girlfriends he’s lost.
