Directed by Jordy Simpson, the moody and cinematic visual captures the songs thematic exploration with a particular focus on heartbreak and self-destruction, following the demise of a relationship. Filmed in Sydney, we meet McColl in the wake of a car crash as glimpses of a former love flash across the screen, offering insight into the state of the former relationship and the influence had on one another.
Speaking of the visual, McColl shares: “I wanted every track to tell a story visually as well as musically. We wanted each piece of music to sound like it could be in a movie. A cinematic desire. Jordan Simpson (Flowerboy production) is one of my closest friends who lives up the road. I played him the track and Andre and myself described the plot. I remember Jordy switched and looked so serious and said “lets make it fucked up amazing”. I remember rocking up to set on one of the car crash scenes and the car was smashed, smoke everywhere, lights in the trees, people running around, this was at 3 am in a Maroubra carpark. I started tearing up because I couldn't believe this was happening, months of work and here we are on set, i felt so fucking grateful and blessed by my friends.”
