One of this year’s finest newcomers, Bridie Monds-Watson alias SOAK, returns with a new music video. Reckless Behaviour is the latest single off her praised debut LP Before We Forget How To Dream. And the song comes with a really heart-wrenching couple that features a highly unlikely couple that join forces for a road trip.
Director Bob Gallagher explains the concept in the following words:
‘When I first saw SOAK perform a few years ago the thing that struck me most was that there is a really tangible sense of empathy to Bridie’s songwriting. You get the impression that she’s writing for someone, in a way that’s genuinely very caring and reassuring. I tried to get that sense of empathy across in Jo, the older character played by Fiona York. Jo is a thief so she’s very observant. I think she sees elements of herself in the younger character played by Dani Hiro. The video is about what two people observe in each other and how that makes them relate in a way that transcends their difference in age or their backgrounds.’
