A timeless love story

Teaming up again with Director Ravi Dhar (who previously directed “Passion”), Awolnation tells us a non-sequential love story that goes hopscotching between the past and present in their video “Handyman.” Featuring actor Monte Markham and actress Alex Essoe, “Handyman” is a series of flashbacks from an old man who reminisces the travels and romance of his relationship. Whether the relationship worked out or not is the mystery of “Handyman”:

“I wanted to finally tell a good ole fashion love story,” explained frontman Aaron Bruno. “We all have the opportunity to be the handyman (or woman) of the heart.”

The track is from Awolnatin’s upcoming album Here Comes the Runts, which will be out on February 2nd. The band will also start touring next month:
