Set on the shore of a sun bleached paradise, Ben Howard
abstractly unpacks the series of moments leading up to that strange second when you look past your lovers eyes and think "I forget where we were."
The video is Howard's directorial debut, and he chose to conquer the title track of his new album I Forget Where We Were
with a study in the passing of time. The scene plays out like a Wes Anderson film in slow motion. Yellow, blue, sunlight, and a rifle are one half of the battle of aesthetics between seascape and a strangely placed skyscraper. A summer, or a lifetime, or just a day at the beach pass in the company of one young couple as they await, or eventually notice, change. The shots are still, meditative, and rustling with anticipation, much like the deep pools of Howard's album.
