“‘Beside You’ is about how we choose to communicate with the people in our lives romantically or otherwise – how connections can evolve.”
To reflect this the Music Video Director Lachlan Dickie explores connection in odd circumstances. He created a dystopian future world. Inspired by films like ‘LA GUERRE DU FEU’, a French dialogue free feature film about cavemen, he asks what kind of relationships would exist within a devolved civilisation. “Even if we have progressed incredibly and have conquered mortality, I wonder what kind of strange world will be left to experience.”
The song and video are not without tongue and cheek moments though, smiling at how bizarre humans are and celebrating that.
