Video of the Moment #1967: SOAK

Northern Ireland’s SOAK has premiered a new video for her latest single ‘Reckless Behaviour’. The track features on Derry singer/songwriter Bridie Monds-Watson’s 2015 Mercury Prize-nominated album ‘Before We Forgot How to Dream’, which Carrie reviewed back in the spring ahead of its release in June.

The promo, filmed by the same director Bob Gallagher that has been behind Girl Band‘s memorable videos of recent memory, chronicles the unlikely alliance between two patients of very different ages in a mental hospital. Of the video, Gallagher says:

When I first saw SOAK perform a few years ago, the thing that struck me most was that there is a really tangible sense of empathy to Bridie’s songwriting. You get the impression that she’s writing for someone, in a way that’s genuinely very caring and reassuring. I tried to get that sense of empathy across in the older character played by Fiona York; she is a thief so she’s very observant. I think she sees elements of herself in the younger character played by Dani Hiro. The video is about what two people observe in each other and how that makes them relate in a way that transcends their difference in age or their backgrounds…Those connections between people are what help you to get well and stay healthy, so I hope the video goes some way towards illustrating that.
