Director Andy Wooding (http://www.shakeldimes.com) comments, ”The song, to me, really directs the video itself. Mike’s compositions are quite layered and orchestrated and spark visuals, so it really made my job very easy. Images of the girl he sings of, the duality, the good and bad, the surface and the interior all just sort of appeared when listening to it (a dozen times, of course). Mike’s a great storyteller, so I didn’t try to do anything too clever. I just followed what I felt the story in the song was; a girl over-focused on her self and others and, of course, any prolonged period of focus can lead to darkness. The song has a nice and light melancholic verse and a heavier aggressive chorus so I just tried to match those highs and lows; softness and hardness, with similarly light and dark visual tones.”
