Du0 - Way Back Down
Du0 (Ryan) sent me the demo for Way Back Down with no concept in mind (my favourite) so I went to work listening to the track anywhere and everywhere. I’m naturally attracted to the melancholy of love and relationships, so the track struck a cord with me.
I felt the video needed some kind of performance expression to accompany the narrative, and since Du0 doesn’t appear in his videos, I substituted in a dance performance, created by the hugely talented Choreographer: Brett Beckhurst and dancer: Phoebe Belles.
Sorrow will let us borrow a happier moment, a small piece of ecstasy, but, it must always return, buried deep.
A beautiful and talented crew made this music video happen, and I'm forever in gratitude to them for making such a wonderful piece.
