Jacob Hopewell captures the fragile emotion of Rosie Lowe's Water Came Down with a visual interpretation inspired by video artist Bill Viola’s classic piece Tristan’s Ascencion.

Together with Rosie's heartfelt performance, it features couples floating underwater; they are paralysed and immobile, a visual metaphor for feeling drowned within a relationship. 

“The song represents the moment most of us have been in at some point, the realisation that a love you believed might last forever is falling apart," says Rosie Lowe. "We all want to love and be loved and sometimes it blinds us. Water represents that moment of realisation, and as long as the water is coming down we can’t see the light and before we know it we’re drowning.”
