Stevie Russell explores issues of conscience and moral courage in his video for Kodaline's Honest, as a politician signs an official document against his better judgement.
Kodaline 'Brother' by Stevie Russell
The return of Kodaline also heralds the return of Stevie Russell, their regular music video collaborator, with a tale that might just be his most heart-rending work yet.
It starts in the darkest circumstances, at the funeral of a child. The focus is on another child, the younger brother of the recently deceased, who at first seems oblivious to the enormity of the situation.
What follows is a poignant supernatural tale. The older brother (and he's the spitting image of the younger one) comes back, for a night of play. And the viewer always knows, what the little boy cannot, that the magic and joy is temporary.
Concisely told - and this is edited by music video editing legend Tony Kearns - Russell's video is about the stages of grief, which must start when when you move on from the stage of denial.
