Directed by Brendan Canty, our latest video of the week comes from UK indie pop duo Seafret, with the rather lovely “Atlantis”. The song is undeniably soothing, with gentle harmonies that carry you away on a bed of pink fluffy clouds. It’s fitting then that the visuals build conceptually on the already dreamlike nature of the song, with a storyline that we imagine owes quite a bit to Where The Wild Things Are.

Filmed in the Wicklow mountains outside Dublin, “Atlantis” is beautifully shot, and exudes a sense of escapism and magical realism through every element of its being. Ultimately, both the song and video’s narratives are rooted in some sort of loss or tragedy, but what they represent is a yearning that undoubtedly speaks to us all – a yearning for escape. MB
