I’ve started off my Sunday in tears but I’m not sad, I’m happy and grateful to Kodaline for sharing the stunningly beautiful video for ‘Wherever You Are’.
The visuals focus on a young couple (played by Teresa Oman and Nick Mahady) in a blossoming relationship. Theyd always planned a trip to Morocco together, but his tragic death meant that it was an ambition that they couldn’t fulfill. She later decides to complete the journey alone. Its a bittersweet experience: it’s the trip of a lifetime and a fitting way to say goodbye, but his absence is heartbreaking.
Take a look
Director Riley Blakeways interpretation of frontman Steve Garrigans lyrics perfectly captures the songs poignancy.
Blakeway commented, After hearing the song for the first time, I was reminded of a close friend that lost someone very special to her and shortly after, went on a trip in search of catharsis. I then asked that friend to star in the film and the result was one of the most meaningful collaborations I’ve had. I can’t thank Teresa enough for the trust and vulnerability she gave me.”
