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.
Aaron Smith 'Unconditional' by Stevie Russell
A woman is beckoned into the woods by a part of herself, in Stevie Russell's absorbing video for Aaron Smith.
Ethereal and introspective, the video for Unconditional opens with the main character - played by Cadhla O’Reilly - as she follows her doppelgänger through a forest, matching her steps and exploring the environment as one entity.
The space is an opportunity for reflection and understanding, and as O'Reilly connects with nature and the signs of life that surround her, she dissolves the regret and pain that have been holding her back.
Beautifully shot by DoP James Mather, the earthy colour palettes and layered visuals encapsulate the concept, translating the lyrics to something incredibly universal and relatable.
