It’s a frantic race to nowhere in Dan Croll’s video for Away From Today

Whatever he's running from, it seems he still has a long way to go.

British songwriter Dan Croll follows up his summer single, ‘Swim‘ with the release of cinematic new video for ‘Away From Today’. Both singles taken from his upcoming sophomore album have been well received, counting near on half a million streams each, signalling fans’ fervour for his quirky electronic indie sound is far form waning.

Directed by Greg Barnes, the video sees Croll fleeing a scene that has seemed to cause him some anxiety. Barnes manages to amplify the theatre heard in Croll’s single presenting a stunning mini film that captures both a sense of urgency and isolation. As Croll gallops through isolated woods, over rocks and across shores, however freeing the action may appear, there’s a sense that whatever he’s running from it just can’t be forgotten.
