As many artists continue to capitalize on the lack of music video censorship and compete with shock and awe, we often forget that the medium, although short, can still be used as an informative storyteller. The latest video from Maine-based husband and wife rustic folk duo Arborea
, does just that. The song "After The Flood Only Love Remains" from their early 2013 release Fortress of the Sun
transports us to a Caribbean jungle where you're invited into the isolated life of an imaginative young girl; one whose resilience radiates through the gloom and lens. The video's director Geoff Ryan said of his 7-minute creation, "Inspired by the my travels through the Caribbean and South Pacific where I've seen the courage of hurricane and tsunami survivors to rebuild, and the resiliency of the children who create their own form or normalcy in times of hardship, I wanted to explore the link between love and loss through the imagination and eyes of a child."
Arborea is a musical duo from Maine, formed in the summer of 2005 by Shanti Curran and Buck Curran. Since 2007 they've toured extensively throughout the US, UK, and Europe.
