Courage My Love have dropped a lyric video for their song 'Walls'.
Vocalist Mercedes Arn-Horn had this to say about the rather glitchy and disturbing clip:
"We filmed it during our summer on Vans Warped Tour with the help of our friends Tyler Dennen and Charlie Martel. This was our first attempt at filming something completely independently. All the shots you see were filmed in different parts of the Bandwagon we were traveling in, or in parking lots after the festival had ended for the day. We then approached our glitch artist friend Polygon, who we’ve worked with before on our video for 'Animal Heart', to add his artistic vibe to the editing of the raw footage.
Nothing about this video was planned beforehand, which I think adds to the raw emotional nature of it. A lot of the imagery we used in the shots was completely spur of the moment. The song is about feeling alone, even when surrounded by people. It’s about that dirty, empty feeling of rebounding after a meaningful relationship ends, and being emotionally lost.
For this reason we felt it would be best to only have one of us in the video to portray that feeling of utter helplessness and loneliness, and the emotional horror of truly being alone in the world. We have our creative friends to thank for bringing this video to life in a way that we have never experienced before.”
