Prep ft. Anna Of The North 'Over' by Tim Fox
Tim Fox explores the convenience of staying in a relationship long after the love has faded in his video for the smooth-indie of Prep's Over.
Fox focusses upon a wealthy couple who's marriage has been running on empty for years. They never separated and still live in the same house - and they are also experts at keeping up appearances. But under the surface there's tension, unhappiness and a whole lot of dirty secrets.
The offbeat visual explores the idea of selflessly enjoying your freedom and alone time, and the cracks it can create in a partnership. Lead actors have great physical presence and style - funny, but also tragic, testing the waters of their own personal fantasies but never brave enough to cut the cord.
