Video: Jonathan Bree – Valentine

Something a bit different for you this Valentine’s Day evening: New Zealand indie singer Johnathan Bree brings us his alternative loveless anthem.

By Graeme Smith

Clearly burned by love, Jonathan wishes his former Valentine to be “lonely and blue” to a easy-listening beat. Perhaps influenced by The Divine Comedy, Jonathan has a similar deliver to Neil Hannon and a similar sense of irony.

The video for Valentine is really something to behold. Check it out below. Warning: not one for the loved-up!
