Sam Hill - 15th Aug 2013

With their new album teetering on the verge of the UK charts, American duo The Civil Wars now have a dramatic and emotive video to accompany their single 'The One That Got Away'.  And it's one that pulls out all the stops, with Tom's driving narrative powerfully and succinctly fitted into three and a half minutes.

Filmed on location in Arkansas and Oklahoma, we follow one woman struggling to make her way in post-disaster towns and small rural communities.  Stunning scenery and twisting relationships are a plently.
