Even the most staunch February 14 hater will crack a smile after watching The National’s new video for “I Need My Girl.” Check it out below.

The video for the love song off 2013″s “Trouble Will Find Me” portrays Matt Berninger”s vulnerable lyrics through couples interlocked in an intimate dance. Director Sophia Peer keeps it simple, placing the dancers on a black background and tracing their moves in slow motion. 

The National will continue its North American tour on March 25 in Los Angeles, where it will premiere its new concert film “Mistaken for Strangers.” Read more about the film here and check out the full tour dates below the video.
