Kieran Evans' beautifully photographed film for Seamus Fogarty's new track uses the simple premise of a journey from land to sea as the backdrop to weave a vocal performance and a typographic treatment of the lyrics.

Shot in the Isle of Sheppey in Essex, the combination of natural beauty and old industry is brought together in the great black and white cinematography, shot by Evans himself. Fogarty's journey through these landscapes under a cloudless summer sky is counterbalanced with closeups of his face, and lines from the song printed on clear celophane. Travelling along hidden paths and well-trodden tracks, the singer's journey reflects his lyrics - and eventually lead us to a vast, empty sea.

And a word of warning - this video starts with over a minute of Evans' imagery with no sound at all. So your headphones aren't broken.
