Naarm indie rock band Psychic Social Club have unleashed the video for their latest single ‘We Don’t Talk’.
‘We Don’t Talk’ is a cathartic unbottling of emotions, and also a meditation on past relationships that have faded over time. With its fuzzy guitars, soaring chorus, and driving rhythm section, the song provides listeners with a therapeutic release of words unsaid.
Directed by Aidan Rice, the video speaks to the meaning of the track, immersing viewers in a simple yet sadly relatable narrative.
Rice masterfully brings this short story to life, skilfully capturing the essence of the song’s emotional landscape, the washed-out colour palette and poignant moments contribute to an overall atmosphere of bittersweet melancholy, reflecting the realities of love slowly lost.
Speaking about the video, Frontman Jared Roscioli said:
“The video portrays the story of a couple whose relationship is on the brink, and while they both understand that staying together is detrimental, the pain of separation is too overwhelming. You start with a birthday celebration, a moment that should be joyous, but instead is tinged with sadness and introspection. You then follow with the release of emotions, that Aidan captures perfectly through the metaphor of a food fight, ending in a melancholy surrender. It’s the perfect visual representation of the complexities and contradictions of human relationships, and what we tried to capture with We Don’t Talk.“
