Passenger 'A Song For The Drunk And Broken Hearted' by Raja Virdi
Raja Virdi directs his second video for Passenger, for the poignant A Song For The Drunk And Broken Hearted.
Taking inspiration from Joker, we see Passenger and his band - all in clown make-up - play to an uninterested social club audience - intercut with multiple vignettes depicting the artist's unhappiness and willing to escape.
The lovely cinematography by Pieter Synmanis the embodiment of downbeat mood of the song, with a depressed green colour palette and grimy aesthetic, creating a dichotomy between the seemingly upbeat music and the dark narrative.
