Catching Flies "The Light" (Greg Barnes, dir.)

Catching Flies ft Trim ‘The Light’

London artist Catching Flies turns to up and coming Black Dog Films director Greg Barnes for his latest video for 'The Light'. Catching Flies has been described as sitting on the "smooth, mellow side of electronic music" somewhere "between Flying Lotus and Bonobo". 

Speaking of the video, Greg explains: ‘The track was dreamlike and somehow sobering all at once - I knew I wanted to bring that hauntingly powerful mix into the video. Trim’s lyrics are a soulful reminiscing of his youth; full of nostalgia, regrets and hindsight - written with the wisdom of someone beyond their years - who has lived life. I wanted to personify that wisdom, and depict Trim as an elderly version of himself, played by an older actor. From there, the image of an ageing and lonely MC began to apparate; melancholic and gnarled, navigating the world of his youth - ghost-like in his invisibility but visually sticking out like a sore thumb, a metaphor for the immortality we feel when we're younger - and the mortality we didn’t plan for…’
