Video of the Moment #2422: Luke Sital-Singh

Luke Sital-Singh has just unveiled a new promo video for the title track to his recent album ‘Time is a Riddle’. This simple visual representation, directed by Jamie Carter, finds our singer/songwriter hero playing piano alone in a church, and the setting is reflective of the religious imagery weaving through his lyrics: “holy, holy, holy God above / something must have happened to you love / and no one has an answer good enough / suddenly a weight has left me . . .”

The simple chordal nature of the piano arrangement is highlighted by recurring shots of hammers striking the strings inside the instrument, while the insistent ticking percussion keeps us mindful of the song’s main theme: the ephemeral nature of time. Sital-Singh’s most existentially captivating lyric, ironically, comes near the end of the song, when he wonders “will there come a finish line / when we finally realise / no one ever thought to start the clock?”

You can watch the video for ‘Time is a Riddle’ just below; the full album of the same name is available now via Raygun Records. TGTF’s previous coverage of Luke Sital-Singh, including editor Mary’s review of the album, can be found through here.
