Directed by Gabriel Adelman, the video follows Mathew V through an extraterrestrial adventure set to an extremely danceable track. “Catching Feelings” is infused with fun lyrics and dynamic beats, accomplishing Mathew’s goal for the song.
“I really wanted this song to be something people could dance to. That really isn’t something I’d done before and it was super fun to explore that side of me. I want this to be a song people can listen to when they are thinking of their high school crush. Channelling nostalgia, fun, and playful energy.”
