Have you ever been in a relationship that you knew wasn’t working but continued to stick it out because it was easier to stay than leave? When you love someone, you want to do everything in your power to make it work, even if that means ignoring the warning signs.
Irish musician Talos wrote about this feeling in the song Odyssey. In an interview with the music video’s director for Nowness, Brendan Canty, explains the story a bit better.
“We wanted to keep things serene at the start, as often relationship problems go unspoken, and as the video builds the visuals become more disruptive as the problems surface and this great and beautiful Odyssey comes to an end.”
