Daniel Carberry and Carly Cusson collaborate to create an atmospheric and at times claustrophobic showcase for Australian singer-songwriter CLOVES. 

It's all largely achieved due an excellent appreciation of the interplay between shadow and light, as CLOVES finds herself in stark yet effectively-mounted scenes - representing different levels of a videogame - that visualise frustration, and the sense of being boxed-in.

"The inspiration for this video was the isolation, exhaustion and repetition that anxiety creates," says CLOVES. "It can feel like an over-functioning game in your mind. So I wanted to travel through my worlds game, each 'level' with a visual cue of what those barriers in your mind feel like - only to end up right back where you started, [in] what feels like an impossible cycle to break."
