Vance Joy "Fire and the Flood" (Hayley Young, dir.)

Don't be soothed by the one-take intro: That's just to set you up for the destructive crescendo of this emotional video from director Hayley Young.

Vance Joy: "I had a recurring image in my head of a guy walking in the neighbourhood where his ex-girlfriend lives. He is haunting the places they used to go together. He has time on his hands and feels kind of useless. He thinks that when they are back together he'll be at peace again... I am an admirer of Hayley's work and I liked her idea of doing a long take and having me sing directly to camera. I just sang it really loud and with as much conviction as I could muster, in the hope that the point would get across. She'd yell out from behind the camera if she was into what I was doing, which gave me confidence. It was the first time I've really given that kind of performance to a video clip."
