Gloomy rockers The National aren’t usually the first band you think of when romance is on your mind, but that might change with their dreamily beautiful new video for “I Need My Girl.”

Directed by Sophia Peer, the clip features a seamlessly edited and kaleidoscopic montage of couples slow dancing to the broodingly romantic track from last year’s Trouble Will Find Me. While the contemplative tune still taps into the raw emotion that’s part of the band’s signature style, the video itself is warm and fuzzy enough to share with the ones you love on Valentine’s Day.
