John Grant – Down Here

John Grant‘s latest album Grey Tickles, Black Pressure has been doing pretty well in the end of year lists, it’s amusing, awkward and infectious music making it something of an instant hit. Today he has unveiled an equally idosyncratic video for new single Down Here.

Directed by Lisa Gunning, and set in London suburbia, the video features a teenager who dreams of becoming a synchronised swimmer. But will his gender prove to be a barrier, or will he be able to fulfil his dreams? So many questions as the protagonist learns that ‘what we got down here is oceans of longing / and guessing games, and no guarantees’ – like Grant before him.
