A young woman leaves the big city to head to back home, in Bill Bleakley's tender promo for Ocean Alley.Backdropped by a stunning desert landscape, we see the main character sprinting towards camera, her business-casual attire ruffled and unkempt. This is a spur of the moment decision that is playing out like a true adventure. After hitchiking and connecting with a love interest along the way, the character finishes the journey alone, ending with a shot of her embracing her parents.It's a simple yet beautiful concept, with a real, classic road-trip vibe. The breathtaking locations act as another character completely, lending the visual a rough and ready edge that matches the protatgonist's spontaneous travels."The band gave me a lot of freedom in coming up with a concept for this one," says Bleakley. "We thought it would be cool to follow a protagonist leaving the city and heading home."To make it feel epic we wanted to cover as much ground as possible in the space of a few days. Hence we drove from Melbourne to Broken Hill and shot along the way."
