Watch the video here…

Frontman and previous TFFT Live headliner Ruarri Joseph states that the video, “tries to strike at the contrast between the innocence of youth, simple wide open spaces and imagination vs. the inevitable claustrophobia of what happens as you grow up, getting boxed in and the clarity muddied. Would it be believed if I said the kid is actual 8mm footage of me as a kid?”
