Australian outfit Ocean Alley share entrancing video for new single ‘Deepest Darkness’

Australia’s Ocean Alley have shared a video for their first new music of 2022, “Deepest Darkness.”

“Deepest Darkness” is a swirling, dark tune that sees Ocean Alley leaning into a gritty indie rock sound. The track is a love song about how someone can bring out the best side of you, even in your darkest moments. Directed by W.A.M. Bleakley, the accompanying video is perfectly peculiar and entrancing. It was filmed on the Panavision lens that was used during the filming of the original Star Wars.

“We had a huge amount of freedom in this clip to make it as weird as we wanted,” W.A.M. Bleakley explains. “Everyone really believed in the idea so we were able to get an amazing team on board. We were lucky to work with cinematographer Campbell Brown who shot the clip on vintage Panavision C Series anamorphic lenses (one of the lenses in the set was used on the original Star Wars movie), Odd Studios created a custom set of LED teeth for us and we had amazing actor Jillian Nguyen in the lead role who brought the whole thing together.”

Watch the video for “Deepest Darkness” below.

“This song is about being so deeply in love with someone and realizing how important their support can be to you… that you literally go through the deepest and darkest times together, and that unity makes you so much stronger,” frontman Baden Donegal explains. “It’s from the perspective of imagining what it would feel like to go through life’s tough spots on your own, and having a huge appreciation for the support you receive.”
