"Quicksand was a difficult one to conceptualise because my mind couldn't escape the fact that this song is a very literal account from a person in Pakistan. It was then I realised that Quicksand needed to be more of a mood film, it needed to translate the emotions within the lyrics into surreal and metaphorical visuals.
"Each scene represents an emotion from the story. The beach scene represents the illusion of freedom and probably why a lot of this goes unnoticed in Pakistan, none of these prisoners are chained up, but through threats and fear they are not free to walk away from the brick kilns. The bedroom scene shows instability and unbalance at home. Even the feathers stand for something but l'll leave your minds to decode the rest of the video."
