WTF: Rixton Just Released The Craziest, Most Depressing Video For ‘Hotel Ceiling’

Well, that was shocking.

Um, excuse me while I pick my jaw up off the floor because I just finished watching Rixton's new video for "Hotel Ceiling."

The British foursome warned us there would be "twists and turns" in the video -- but I was expecting it to be quite like this. But don't get me wrong, it's a really good video.

The guys — Jake Roche, Danny Wilkin, Charley Bagnall, and Lewis Morgan — don't appear in the Clarence Fuller-directed clip. Instead, they let the narrative of the somber song, co-written by Ed Sheeran, take over.

“It is actually really depressing,” Jake admitted to us. “There’s a few twists and turns in there — it’s a very strong narrative. It’s being shot in London, which is our first video we’ve shot in London, but we aren’t there, but our hearts are.”

I think "really depressing" may be an understatement. The video follows a girlfriend who loses her mind after her boyfriend goes missing. The clip intercuts with moments of them being a madly in love couple -- you know, kissing, snuggling, getting tattoos -- but then they show signs of trouble -- fighting, hitting... not good.

I'm not going to give it away, but you're going to want to watch this video... again and again.
