Following last year’s debut single, Not Good Enough, the Toronto-based Adrian Underhill returns with a new video to join the single.
Taking the song’s message of allowing oneself to be vulnerable despite the crushing anxiety that ravages you, Underhill and a ballet dancer dance around each other in this peculiar but charming video. Underhill provided some insight, explaining:
“Through this video we wanted to explore the relationship between isolation and togetherness. The repetitive mechanical movements serve as a meditation on the simultaneous individuality and connectedness between people. As we navigate the steps of this dance we each exist in our own bubble – infinite distances between even the closest of friends (I’m paraphrasing Rilke). This tension between distance and connection is played out over and over, and only through exposing their vulnerabilities do the dancers begin to see each other clearly.”
