Rooms 'Stars Beyond' by Rory Pearson
Sydney psychedelic-pop duo Rooms have released this engaging narrative video for their track Stars Beyond that is definitely on the gutwrenching heartache side of things.
Placing the viewer in the middle of a couple's rocky relationship, director Rory Pearson manages to tap into the thoughts and feelings flooding a young woman as her lover is slipping away. Serving to heighten what's at stake, we witness flashbacks to blissful moments between the pair resulting in an intimate, one-sided account of the emotional spiral that precedes a breakup, with all its fear, doubt, and ultimately, its deep and enduring sadness. Powerful stuff!
"The end of a relationship, whether you simply grow apart or lose attraction for one another is one of the hardest emotional roads to navigate. All the normal signals and signs from your partner become muddled and communication begins to deteriorate.
"We feel that when a relationship ends you tend to have a very real and vivid memory of the good times shared with your partner. Their smell, their smile, their laugh. Kind of like a highlights reel that omits the bad stuff, as though your mind is playing tricks on you. The idea of a sense of shared memory between you and your partner becomes somewhat corrupted or lost in the process. We wanted to convey this by having our leads memories of her partner degrade."
