Jimmy Brown - 1st Apr 2015

Laurie Lynch unveils an emotive tale about Elliot, a 15 year old boy riding around his neighbourhood with a rifle and a boombox, suffering from epilepsy and regular teenage angst, in the video for indie-slacker baritone Oscar Scheller's rather excellent Daffodil Days.

The setting of coastal bleakness may be familiar - and Oscar himself cameos, playing guitar in a suitably bleak living room - but Laurie conjures something special here. “You’re on your own / and that’s OK” is the line Oscar sings at the song’s end, and the video is indeed a representation of that sentiment.
