Gulf Coast Soul band The Suffers have released the official music video for “Could This Be Love” from their new album It Starts With Love, which arrived this summer via Missing Piece Records. Directed by Nate Edwards (Tobe Nwigwe, Pharrell, Doja Cat), the new video focuses on “romantic bliss”. The Suffers have also just started on a U.S. tour and will make stops in New York, Washington, D.C., and many more.

Frontwoman Kam Franklin says of the video:

I had the idea for this video in a dream. I knew I wanted it to be a prequel to our ‘Everything Here’ music video that was released in 2018. It stars Robin Beltran and Christian Pope, who are both featured in that video, but with a far less tragic storyline. This new video was directed by Nate Edwards, and it is meant to show what it looks like to be Black, carefree, and in love. No trauma. No drama. Just love. The video was shot in and around Galveston, TX and Houston, TX. The final scenes feature shots inside one of my favorite bars of all time, Grand Prize Bar. The final shots of them in the bar leaning on one another was a dream come true, and I hope the video inspires those watching and or listening to find the love that they deserve.
