David Knight - 3rd July 2017

In Daniel Broadley's video for Why, Skinny Living frontman Ryan Johnston revisit scenes from the life of his younger, and more troubled self.

It also features Johnston's sister, the person cited in the song for saving the singer, helping him through a dark and devastating period of depression, and on the road to recovery.

“It’s always daunting making a video, wondering if it will bring the song across in the right way," says Johnston. "I feel like it does. It represents something a lot of us go through and hopefully demonstrates the power of unconditional love.”
