Directed by Rhys Graham and produced by Jensen Cope, the ‘Space’ music video draws on the single’s artwork and the lyrical themes of isolation and communication. The clip paints a cinematic portrait of a young woman’s meandering journey as she seeks to take her life in a new direction.
“Our character stops off at a couple of isolated motels which lead us into the world of the band….it all very much reflects the idea of the isolation that we’ve all just experienced,” Rhys explains.
“We also used a deaf actor to reflect the ways that separation or a different way of communicating is not necessarily a lack of freedom, it’s just a different way of doing things that we are used to. That very much ties in with the emotional space in the song.”
