Merrick Seeks Out The Red Rose In This Classic Neo-Noir Inspired Music Video
In a beautiful portrayal of Jordan Merrick’s new single ‘Low Country’, is the new music video inspired by classic films and silent movies – watch here.
Merrick released ‘Low Country’ on the 7th of June as the first taste of his debut album and his first release since his massive debut year in 2017.
Now, in the obscure and “read between the line’s” fashion of silent films, this music video is a throwback to neo-noir films, melodramas and dips its toes into what some would call art-house.
Filmed and edited by David Fulham and Marigold Pazar (Wouldyoupassmetheocean), the music video aligns with the theme of ‘Low Country’, exploring the excitement and dare of temptations – being dangerously lured into something you’ve been trying to resist.
Developed with a 1950’s-esque pastel colour palette in mind, this melodramatic story has Merrick quaintly reading Leo Tolstoy’s ‘War and Peace’ before he continuously finds himself distracted by intrusive thoughts, phone calls and an elusive hand. Finally, Merrick gives in and goes to seek out the red rose he keeps seeing.
Ultimately, the music video conveys that he had the choice to either read about lust and love in one of the worlds most important pieces of literature or go and seek it out in real life.
