Berwyn 'Trap Phone' by Brock Neal Roberts
Brock Neal Roberts directs an emotionally affecting video for Berwyn's Trap Phone.
The song is about two individuals, one inside the bubble and one outside of it, and the trap phone is the only point of contact between the two.
Exploring this idea of distant love, the concept shows the artist spending a lot of time making one-way calls, reaching out to someone who won't reciprocate the contact. In a haze of everyday moments spent with friends, the loss of this relationship becomes existential, questioning what love and life is from a human perspective.
A rap break at the half-way mark adds a poignancy to the project, and the unbroken, almost one-minute long shot that complements this section is incredibly powerful.
With a distinct visual style and otherwordly aesthetic - care of DoP Spike Morris - the video is a beautiful interpretation of the lyrics.
Trap Phone was shot all over Romford with Berwyn's friends and at places that hold a special significance for the artist.
