London post punk band High Vis have shared the video for their latest single “Trauma Bonds“.
According to the press, the melodic jangle and impassioned vocals of Trauma Bonds, offer up an ultimately hopeful search for empathy and communication in the face of ongoing personal tragedy.
Frontman Graham Sayle shares:
“‘Trauma Bonds‘ was written after the news of another tragic suicide of one of our friends during lockdown. It forced us to reflect on how the death of young people had become so normalised within our group of friends that we had become numb to it. Friendships became Trauma Bonds and the gravity of these situations suppressed through toxic coping mechanisms. The song is a hopeful exploration into these feelings in an attempt to support each other through better communication and collective empathy.”
Filmed and directed by Jonah West and shot over the course of a year, the video is an emotionally charged portrait of Jamz and Sean: two people negotiating the world whilst living in the shadow of trauma, and is dedicated to everyone carrying the weight of grief for those taken too soon, and those struggling with their own existence. When you’re going through hell, keep going.
