The monochromatic colouration reflects the bleak and dark nature of the song and the water is a reference to some of the lyrics of the song.
"Keep your head above the water, cos if you don't you know you're sure to drown"
After looking at their official cover for the album/EP, it has become evident to me that my idea is highly different. I wish to portray alcoholism, with the alcohol being the water and the addiction being the drowning. Either that or, use the multitude of building shots that I have included with in the video to represent the feeling of being small compared to the rest of the world around you (worms eye view looking up at buildings given the perspective that the concrete figures are towering over the person).
