Bridie Jackson & The Arbour - We Talked Again (Video)

The first time we saw the new crowd funded video for Bridie Jackson & The Arbour's song We Talked Again we were incredibly tired and had spent some time away from those we love the most. Watching this didn't help matters one iota - tearjerking would be the operative word. 

Thankfully with a good sleep behind us things seemed a little less emotionally devastating and instead we were able to focus on the video's interpretation of the song - that of the need for human warmth and bringing people together, in this case by way of a dramatic emergency; although the lyrics could be interpreted around the idea of two people in a broken relationship where as Bridie sings 'the ice came'. Whatever your reading of the lyrics, there's no doubt that the film is a beautiful and raw piece of visual work that perfectly accompanies the surging cello and strings, delicate bell plates and Bridie's haunting vocal.

If you have kids we advise not watching it when you're feeling run down or tired. You'll probably blub.
