Niall Horan gets all pensive in new “On the Loose” video

On a bright desert highway, cool wind in his hair, the former One Directioner frolics frumpily with a woman he's second-guessing.

Niall Horan is making himself out to be the ‘safe choice’ when it comes to former One Directioners. Compared to, say, Zayn’s fashion-forward stance, he’s always cutting a contemplative figure in his videos, pensively staring into the distance while strumming a guitar. And that image is only cemented in his new clip, for “On the Loose.”

Okay, so Horan doesn’t have a guitar strapped onto him in the vid. But he does have a sweet ride. And a denim jacket-wearing, whiskey-spilling, lip-biting woman who’s presumably his partner and the one who’s “On the Loose.” She spends majority of the clip dancing with strangers and giving them coquettish looks while Horan practices his most pained expression: furrowed brows, thousand-yard stare and a deep envy that no amount of hair wax can disguise.

“On the Loose” is off Horan’s debut album, Flicker, which he’ll promote on the North American leg of his world tour in July.
