Along with announcing a much anticipated UK live tour, Ghostpoet has also unveiled the haunting video to the title track of his critically latest album, “I Grow Tired But Dare Not Fall Asleep” we reviewed here
Now comes the beautifully strange and disorienting video, directed by Thomas James and featuring a funeral of sorts, from the point of view of Obar himself. However, he warns against a literal reading – in his own words:
“The song is about growing ever emotionally and physically tired of the circumstances you find yourself in but falling asleep or taking your eye off the ball is not an option. When me and Thomas discussed the concept for this video I was in the process of moving to Berlin and with such a radical change in my life I wanted the video to reflect this also. It’s a goodbye to old Blighty and a death of sorts of the old me to make space for something new.”
A slick and menacing track featuring two duelling guitars over a rock steady rhythm section. Ejimiwe’s vocal delivery is relaxed almost hypnotic in nature and coupled with the music leaves a very cool sounding track.
