WATCH THE TRAVELLING BAND’S VIDEO FOR LEAD SINGLE
“The song was inspired after watching Harold and Maude, a beautiful story of two people who’s circumstances collide while they are travelling in opposite directions in life. The films imagery infiltrated a particular dream with a faceless man tormenting my soul. I’d always loved the metaphor ‘like passing ships in the night’, and we wanted the video to reflect these concepts of missed connections, unfulfilled love, happenstance and the chaotic sliding doors of the subconscious dream world.” – The Travelling Band
