Heartbreak comes to life in Michael Ray and Meghan Patrick‘s “Spirits and Demons” music video.

Directed by Sean Hagwell, the visualizer captures Michael and Meghan delivering their aching post-breakup sentiments surrounded by empty glasses, alluding to how alcohol can’t ever mend a broken heart.

“There’s great contrast in the video between my individual shots and Meghan’s shots,” shares Michael. “It shows how people handle the end of a relationship differently, but the result is the same: we can’t drink away our heartbreak.”

“Spirits and Demons” is off Michael’s Dive Bars & Broken Hearts EP, which arrived in June. The song’s currently approaching the top 40 on the country charts.
