Director Charlie Reader and the Production Club/Spain have created an intriguing video for the Welsh singer/songwriter’s second track from his new album Cannot Be, Whatsoever

The plaintive, ethereal vocals of If We're Being Honest are accompanied by a classic spooky vista of a slow glide along a tree-lined road at dusk – there’s something afoot up ahead, something on fire, a story waiting to be told…

It turns out to be a crash-landed space capsule, the former inhabitant of which has luckily hit Earth just near a functioning pay phone. Which answers the question, do astronauts have mobile phones? And if so, which network provider offers inter-galactic roaming?

Having been apart from friends and family during her long sojourn, the space traveller is understandably moved to be reconnected with them. It’s a sentiment that resonates with the feelings of separation many have experiences in lockdown. 

The director commented, “I wanted to create a simple but powerful story that feels timeless yet is also attuned to the strange situation the world finds itself in now with the pandemic: the emotional complexities of living in isolation and being detached from loved ones. I think it’s a universal story for any struggle and I wanted it to ultimately feel optimistic; projecting a message of hope, resilience and reunification.”
