Half Moon Run – No More Losing the War

[jwplatform i23BnPNL-Pqiywodl]

Half Moon Run’s video for “No More Losing The War” is simple, yet haunting. Beginning with eerie shots of levitating floorboards and playing cards, it immediately captures the dark overtones of the song. The camera is slightly out of focus as an abandoned cigarette burning in its ashtray and pigeons feeding are filmed in low light. These seemingly unrelated images are unsettling and lonely nonetheless as the narrative switches between them and a couple holding hands as they drive down the road on a gloomy, overcast day.
As the mood of the song lifts, so does the video’s, and the pigeons take off into flight as the lyrics “no more losing the war” are sung. Now, the same couple is shown in a field embracing eachother as the sun sets behind the trees. But these subtle highs and lows become increasingly dramatic, and just as we suspect that their trip has taken a positive turn, the director, Człowiek Kamera, hits us with a curveball. To find out what happens check out the entirety of this insanely suspenseful video.
