The Wall runs all the way around HMP Cardiff. It’s a song written for anyone that’s ever had a run in with the British prison system via the imprisonment of close friends or family. That said, if you know the feeling of helplessness in someone else’s pain, separation without total loss or have ever felt the heavy ache of being so close yet so far away from another, it’s also for you.
Directed by Sion Thomas, the video finds Chain of Flowers performing to a largely disinterested crowd, all set within a hazy loop of renaissance art-esque Saturday night chaos; live in the Never Ending Space. Not featured within the video is Canadian multi-instrumentalist Joseph Shabason (Destroyer, The War on Drugs, DIANA) who provides a tearing saxophone cameo over the track.
Tour dates: 1st June – Clwb Ifor Bach, Cardiff | 2nd June – Delicious Clam, Sheffield | 3rd June – The Lower Third, London.
