MUSIC VIDEO REVIEW
"The Space Between Our Eyes" - SayWeCanFly
Written by: Lexie
"And the closest I've come to the feeling of knives,
Is the pain that I feel from the thorns in your side."
Feeling a little low in your love life? SayWeCanFly just came out with a music video for their heartbreaking track, "The Space Between Our Eyes." Gentle instrumentals from a guitar and piano accompany sweet, sincere vocals about a lost love. While the loss of the romance is mourned, it is expressed that it was a predictable loss, since a broken soul just couldn't be saved.
Along with featuring clips of Braden Barrie performing the song, the video portrays this somber theme by following a dark, cloaked, sinister figure, who has fate cards. The darkness evoked by this character conveys the darkness associated with the loss of love, and his interactions with the fate cards -- like spraying blood on them -- expresses how the future of the relationship was bleak from the beginning.
Overall, while this song is heartbreaking, it still has a lovely sound and an interesting choice of imagery. I would give this piece a rating of 7 out of 10. If you haven't checked it out yet, head on over to SWCF's YouTube channel and let us know what YOU think!
