David Lemm continues to explore the environment in his new video for Scottish band Meursault.

"The concept is loosely based on the rites of many indigenous peoples, where a young guy goes into the wilderness to attain a vision," explains David. "Additionally, the idea of clarity being found amidst confusion was a key theme after speaking with the band about the meaning of the track.

"That original starting point quickly developed into the idea of a character who is slightly misguided and believes the best way to understand reality is to measure/record everything in sight. As the video goes on the character realises her measurements are pointless and engages fully with her surroundings, eventually obtaining clarity and reaching a state of heightened perception."
