David Knight - 30th Oct 2018

As George Ezra paces around his bedroom, water seeps under the door - and soon the room is quickly filling up with water. It's a startling and gripping scenario for the video for Hold My Girl, directed by Dave Bullivant, aka Bison.

It's certainly not the easy-going and uplifting vibe that we usually get from the usual George Ezra music video, but it fits with the tone of the song, which gives the sense of a man who's time is quickly running out. And that's exactly what's happening before our eyes in the video.

By all accounts, this was a very difficult shoot to pull off. So if that look on George's face, as the room inexorably fills with water, looks like genuine fear... well, it just might be.
