Glass Ocean stream lockdown video “Bolero”

Vocalist Tobias Atkins says of the video. “During the shooting of the video for ‘Bolero’, the country was right in the midst of its strictest lockdown measures. This made production requirements difficult to obtain. The silver lining was a chance to get creative with minimal tools, crew and sets. So my mum and I used what we could under the corona restrictions to come up with something we were really happy with. Along with the amazing editing skills of our chief of visual Adrian Goleby we ended up with something simple and vibrant.”

Of the track Atkins says. “Bolero represents the sentiment and understanding from being rejected. That attractive soul across the room may not want to dance with you. It may be because of their preference, or it might have something to do with how you represent yourself. How is it that you express desire and engagement in the outside world? Is it the real you or something else? Expressing the truth, with no filter or mask will attract something greater than impulsive desire. Maybe then the real dance can begin.
