Post-rock-inspired Torontonians the Darcys previously shared "The River" from their upcoming album Warring, and now they've given that echoing, atmospheric cut its own music video.

The clip begins with ultra-slow-motion footage of splashing water, which is eventually revealed to be a backwards shot of frontman Jason Couse falling backwards into Toronto's Etobicoke Creek. Halfway through, the footage reverses, and we watch him fall again. The whole thing is one single shot, filmed at 1,700 frames per second.

The clip was directed by Canadian actor Eric Johnson, who explained in a statement: "I wanted to capture a moment of emotion that normally is beyond our abilities of perception. For 'The River' that meant capturing the raw fear and emotion of falling blindly backwards. I also wanted to do this completely and authentically with the camera and without special effects. By shooting at an incredibly high speed we were able to experience this moment of falling not in seconds but over the course of minutes. As for the reality of it all, we only did one take and what you see is Jason's primal response to being pushed off a ledge backwards into dark water. Emotion and motion almost stopped in time."
