Lead Me Down is the second single taken from my upcoming Experiments EP and is the first to get an official video. This is definitely one of my favourite songs I have written and recorded as it feels really true to where I am in my life at the moment. When I finished the EP, I realised that I had written a narrative running between the tracks because I had been writing about my own experiences. For this reason I felt like all the songs were equally important and all should have videos to go with them.
The first two lines of ‘Lead Me Down’ are:
“The strobe lights flicker, lighting up your face,
I watch the patterns, watch the angles that the flashes trace.”
so when I was brainstorming ideas with the video production team, we decided it would be fun to play with lighting effects as the theme for Lead Me Down. The video is centred around changes in lighting from strobes, to silhouettes and different colours. The song is about meeting someone in a bar and knowing they are wrong for you but feeling like you want to be impulsive and ignore the voice of reason in your head. The lyrics are about being reckless and doing something you know you shouldn’t do. I think the video really captures the dark, sexy and mysterious vibe of the track and I’m extremely happy with the end result!
