British heart wrenching crooner Tom Odell has channeled the pain and tears of “Another Love” into a mysterious video that chronicles the search for a missing woman, and the protagonist’s inability to recognize his lost love even when she’s right in front of him. The visuals are compelling because they speak to the message of the song, what happens when we let our heart get stuck so far in the past, bound in fear, that we don’t see the happiness that could be ours, that’s within arm’s reach.
The track is the lead single off his acclaimed EP Songs From Another Love, that earned him the 2013 British Critic’s Choice Award. Filmed by Jamie Thraves who has worked with Radiohead and Blur. Like most good narratives, the film ends with serenity even though there’s not complete closure.
