Earlier this year we shared the nine-minute cityscape video directed by Shilling & Shilling for the Amazing’s “Picture You,” the title track off the Swedish quintet’s latest album. Today we’re premiering the murky video for the record’s third single, “Safe Island,” which takes place in the small English beachside village of Birchington-On-Sea. The black-and-white video becomes psychedelic by the end, as the footage rewinds under an overlay of vibrant shades of pink - an effect rendered by burning celluloid film - to accompany the song’s concluding moments of reverb and screeching effects. Shilling & Shilling commented on the inspiration behind the video:

Part of concept was a continuation from the previous video, “Picture You” - exploring the main character of the woman further and the idea of someone watching and following her. The idea came from the title of the track and its sound. They both have a kind of nostalgic happiness for the first section - but the end re-contextualises everything, making it feel pretty dark. So for the second half we tried to flip those feelings on their head and imply something a bit dark or nightmarish. To convey that, we went for a lot of static shots - kind of strange picture postcards that bring back a smash of memories. We also used odd close ups - a bit stalkerish or like a lover’s old memory, straddling the line of both we hope.

Watch.
