Speaking on the music video for the track, Vera expressed her love for “delving into new visual landscapes of colours, shapes, lighting and symbolism, and the idea of inventing an alternative reality that tells a story and captures the emotional roller coaster of falling in love again.” I think what struck me most about this description, was how much it compared with the surrealist qualities that I have always associated with night-time driving; far stretching roads, expansive landscapes, abstract and shapeless objects and a fresh vision which seems to escape me during daylight hours.
This song tells the story of the problems of communication in today’s virtual dating world.
