Sam Parish-Rookes's unconventional video for Issy Ferris and Archie Sylvester features the pair embarking on a trek through harsh country, until they arrive at a point to perform a deeply symbolic ritual.

Shot over a cold and wet December weekend in Somerset’s Black Down Hills, the bluesy Sickness follows Ferris & Sylvester as they bid farewell to the ordinary, journeying through a mist-strewn woodland to a much darker and sinister place. Then comes a purging bonfire, where the past is left behind.
