Hozier “Take Me To Church”

Released over a year ago, artist Hozier‘s single “Take Me To Church” has been given a second wind since being featured in a “Beats By Dre” commercial recently. The power of the song instantly struck me but it’s only since I watched the video that I realised how incredible and important it is. Shot beautifully in black and white by Brendon Canty, it features the actions of an extremist group opposing a homosexual relationship between two men. The secret and intimacies of that relationship symbolised by a locked box they try to bury. This year has been a turning point in establishing rights for the LGBT community, but this video highlights how many atrocitites are still committed against them despite much progress and a call for compassion. Truly tragic.
