Pop punk band The Downtown Fiction has teamed up with actress/model Matilda Lutz for their music video for "Hepburn Shades," which you can watch now exclusively on Billboard.

“We wanted to portray the song's protagonist, played by Matilda Lutz, lost and locked out of her car, literally at odds with herself," vocalist and guitarist Cameron Leahy said of the "Hepburn Shades" music video. "We shot the video in the desert, a backdrop for her desolation and desperation, that inner conflict. It was fun to watch her just let go and capture the moment in such an epic environment.”

According to Leahy, "Hepburn Shades" addresses modern-day apathy and the general exaltation of sadness, which the music video reflects.

"The song focuses on modern nihilism, the glorification of death and the struggle to find optimism in a world that thrives on a suffocating brand of irony, condemning anyone who really tries."

"Hepburn Shades" was filmed in the deserts outside of Los Angeles and stars Matilda Lutz in both roles. Watch the music video for "Hepburn Shades" below:
