Hozier's new music video sends powerful message about domestic violence


Happy Valentine's Day! Before you send your sweetheart that romantic playlist of hand-picked tracks, try to make sure you're not sending the wrong message. But I can't blame you, it's easy to ignore the lyrics when the melody sounds so beautiful. 

Take, for example, the words to Hozier's Cherry Wine: "Hot and fast and angry as she can be/ I walk my days on a wire./It looks ugly, but it's clean,/Oh momma, don't fuss over me." Anyway, here's the Irish singer's latest music video, which takes direct aim at preventing domestic violence. Directed by Dearbhla Walsh, it stars talented young actress Saoirse Ronan portraying a woman trapped in an abusive relationship.


FYI: All the proceeds from the single will go straight to charities that support victims of domestic abuse. #faceuptodomesticviolence
