Cat Velez - 3rd July 2015

Calum Macdiarmid collaborates with Vaults for their single Cry No More, resulting in an evocative and suspenseful film, which conveys the melancholic tone of the song while also adding a layer of tension through the narrative.

The song is about the resolution not to give up, for which the band wanted a video to tell a story of female empowerment. Calum Macdiarmid’s inspiration came from psychoanalytic dream interpretations and the ways it is used to help patients through dream therapy.

Blythe, Vaults’ lead singer, is the film's lead character, traversing through her own thriller dreamscape, where she attempts to save her self from her nightmare. On her journey she meets a younger version of herself who empowers her (with the help of a snub nose 38 revolver) to change her future.
