Following its initial premiere over on New Noise Magazine, Staffordshire based alternative rockers The Hiding Place have unveiled a video to accompany ‘Are You Even There?’, the band’s brand new single and their first offering since their 2014 EP, ‘So This Is Home’.
You can stream and watch the video for ‘Are You Even There?’ below.
Speaking about the track and its video, vocalist Dominic Webber explains, “The song is very personal to me. Without going into too much detail, the song is about something that happened in my life to those close to me and it certainly made me look at things around me differently. When I was first writing the lyrics they were coming from a place of great sadness, but as time has progressed, they’ve begun to represent hope to me a lot more.
For the video, we worked with Adam Fitch who had previously made us a lyric video for our song ‘Long Winters’. Due to the nature of what the song was about, we didn’t really want a video that told the story or anything like that, instead we asked Adam to come up with a concept inspired by the song. So we filmed myself and our friend Tiffany in this white void always searching, but never finding each other. We also wanted to go against the grain of band music videos and not perform together at all – so we shot all our performances separately to give the feeling of distance.”
If you like what you hear, ‘Are You Even There?’ will be made available from September 15th 2017.
