MOD SUN Returns To Paris For Cathartic “Strangers” Video

MOD SUN Strangers 2023

MOD SUN‘s latest single, “Strangers,” is a deeply personal and emotionally charged track that explores the aftermath of his breakup with his former fiancee, Avril Lavigne. Released following their separation in February as MOD kicked off his massive God Save The Teen Tour, the song serves as a poignant reflection on the complexities of love, loss, and loyalty. What makes “Strangers” even more heartbreaking is the fact that the accompanying music video was filmed in Paris, the very city where MOD SUN proposed to Lavigne in March 2022 before their split.

The video for “Strangers” beautifully captures the bittersweet essence of the song. Against the backdrop of iconic Parisian landmarks, MOD SUN immerses himself in a raw and vulnerable performance, mirroring the emotions conveyed in his lyrics. The juxtaposition of the picturesque scenery and the somber undertones of the song creates a powerful visual narrative.

The decision to film in Paris, where their love story had once flourished, adds an extra layer of emotional weight to the video. It serves as a reminder of the memories and experiences they shared, now tinged with the realization that they are no longer together. The city becomes a symbol of their relationship, echoing the sentiment that love can sometimes unravel even in the most beautiful settings. Additionally, MOD SUN sings, “Guess we really did go up in flames in the end,” calling back to the pair’s first collaboration together, aptly titled “Flames.”

“Strangers” showcases MOD SUN’s growth as an artist and demonstrates his ability to transform personal pain into art. The song’s chorus, “Went from strangers to lovers to strangers again,” captures the conflicting emotions and lingering connection between two individuals who were once deeply intertwined.
