Watch Nightlands’ Dreamy ‘Born to Love’ Video

Nightlands’ Dave Hartley explored the sci-fi side of his “silver man” aesthetic in the video to “I Fell in Love With a Feeling,” and now, the War on Drugs bassist offers a tender look at the person underneath all that metallic paint for the clip to “Born to Love,” another horn-enriched cut from his sophomore album, Oak Island. The She Policeman-directed short tones down the Terminator 2 vibe from “Feeling” and focuses instead on a simple close-up of Hartley as he applies his Tin Man makeup.
