Earlier this year, Russell Taylor dropped his new single "War of Hearts," and it became an instant favorite. Having fought for someone's love and lost the battle before, I could totally relate to his musical tale of a relationship gone wrong. Instead of showing a couple at war -- literally or figuratively -- Taylor takes a simpler approach for the music video as the lone focus of director Kai Morrison's treatment. We see Russell chilling in his crib drowning his sorrows in a bottle of brown liquor as the brokenhearted are wont to do. He finally leaves the darkness of his abode to get some fresh air, and he's seen at a train station, walking across a bridge and ultimately ending up on a beach. He may be singing about a lost love, but he finds comfort in solitude. Being alone may not be so bad after all.
