Video of the Moment #1573: Bear’s Den

The new video from London folk trio Bear’s Den is a unique one, though I wish it was for different reasons. Last month, shockwaves went through Seattle Pacific University community when a lone gunman fired on students at the school, killing one and injuring three others. This promo for the band’s upcoming single ‘Elysium’, out on the 21st of July on Communion Records / Caroline International, doesn’t feature actors but instead director Marcus Haney’s own brother and his friends at the end of their school term, and because of the timing of his visit, the filming happened to coincide with this tragedy and therefore was touched by the events that occurred.

I feel like every time a senseless shooting and senseless deaths happen in America, the American people become more and more desensitised to what has happened, as if it’s a part of life here and it’s okay. It’s not okay. I give both Haney and Bear’s Den much credit for releasing this video; the song itself provided some solace to some of the students and I hope this song and video will serve as a wake-up call to our country that THIS CANNOT GO ON. We need stricter gun control. Now.
