Nobody wants to be part of a couple in the midst of a break-up, but ARMS offers everyone the chance to observe the mayhem in action without the worry of hurt feelings or smashed TVs in their music video for “Heat & Hot Water”.

“We wanted the video to play more like a short-film companion to the song, a mood piece that asks more questions than it answers,” frontman Todd Goldstein, who cameos as “The Devil”, told IFC.com. “I like to think it’s an appropriate mirror of the album’s anxious/melancholy, narrative-driven tone, with a similar touch of the uncanny.”
