Pop two-piece Chain of Islands unveil nostalgic visuals for single ‘Shelter’

Reminiscing an old school Hollywood film, the visuals for Chain of Islands’ new single ‘Shelter‘ are out of this world.

A comforting number that feels like a safe haven, ‘Shelter’ was released as a single back in March.

Emotionally reflecting and capturing honesty within the palm of its hand, this transcending release will certainly lead the duo to a fantastic future ahead.

Speaking about the music video and track, Chain of Islands share, “The director of the music video, Mike Higgs thought it would be fun to visually exaggerate the idea of passing time by using themes from different decades. Different wardrobes, and living sets from the 1920’s, 70’s, 80’s and a clash of all of them at the end in the “current” mess of the themes. 

The idea was a lot of fun to work with and the shoot was one of the easiest we’ve ever had. Besides when the fire alarm went off. It was the first time the fire alarm had ever gone off in this building that had been there since the 1970’s. Luckily the owner was cool and let us finish shooting.

Shelter is a song that, while in the writing process, was very in and of itself. It’s subject matter of self reflection and realization of similar situations and lessons over time were the recurring themes in all the conversations had while demoing ideas for it. We love its visual representation of that in the video we shot with Mike Higgs and we hope everyone who watches it.”

Using a colourful soundscape as well as monotone colours, the music video showcases going through different periods of your life.

Detailing that you are always going to be the most reliable person in your life, this iconic number is best described as effortless, visually and auditory.
