If a better music video has been released this year, we haven’t seen it.

Vancouver-based artist David Vertesi released his new album Sad Dad Cruise Ship last year, and today he’s been kind enough to share his new video for “Waterways” exclusively on GroundSounds. It’s refreshing to see such a focus on good storytelling and the construction of a narrative. “Waterways” is the perfect soundtrack to what has been created here. It’s truly captivating and compelling.

Quote from the director, Nano Clow:

“When listening to the song over and over in preparation for the shoot I got an overwhelming feeling of unease that was heightened by a few powerful moments in the song.  To me, the song feels like an internal battle – we go up and down and back and forth wavering on decisions and emotions – I wanted to craft a story that communicated those feelings.”

Quote from David:

“Waterways is inspired by watching people close to me stay in broken relationships.  Is it honourable? Is it romantic? naive? masochistic? Maybe all of the above.  I had a great time working with Director, Nano Clow to create video that reflects the tragic uneasiness of that experience and this song.”
