Clean Bandit ft A7s 'Everything But You' by Eric Myers, Jack Patterson

Promonews - 17th Mar 2022

Clean Bandit's Jack Patterson collaborates with Eric Myers to direct the heartfelt video for Everything But You, in aid of the Campaign Against Living Miserably.

The video boldly addresses the subject of depression and suicidal thoughts with a combination of grim, gritty realism and uplifting fantasy - and perhaps controversially depicts a scene of attempted suicide with has necessitated the video opening with a 'trigger warning'.

At the heart of the video is a relationship story - and dance sequence - between the young man at the end of his tether, and the magical elf-like female alien who saves him. She shares the same appearance, and flying ability, as Clean Bandit's Jack and Grace, and vocalist A7s, in the Avatar-style performance set-up.

Eric Myers is known for his work as a DoP, but in this case he hands over that role to Rick Joaquim, who excels in bringing two contrasting visual styles into one package. And ultimately the story delivers a strongly optimistic message, as explained by Clean Bandit in their support for CALM.

"The message of Everything But You is that there is always hope, always a reason for living. No matter how you feel right now," comments the band. "That’s why, together with @thecalmzone we want to tell anyone and everyone who can’t see a way out: Stay."
