Artist: As December Falls

Synopsis: Sensing in the lyrics that feeling of being trapped, in an inescapable situation, claustrophobic and agoraphobic all at the same time, I chose to convey this in an American style prison setting, complete with cut scenes of band members in various states of isolation. I wanted to evoke the style of an early 2000s MTV2  style music vid, flooding the main cellblock with fans for a supercharged final scene.

Recorded and produced by Alex Copp.
Mixed by Stevie Knight at Electric Sun.

Jonathan Currinn | Celeb Mix:

"The music video, directed by Justin Griffiths (who also acted as producer, editor, and 2nd cameraman), is set in a prison and really conveys the lockdown vibe of the track, showcasing how difficult it was for people and how we all felt stuck inside our houses – and, at times, like we were imprisoned."
