Videos for a Lazy Sunday: All Boy/All Girl’s ‘Lion’

The video for All Boy/All Girl‘s ‘Lion’ takes a much more serene approach than the their last vid, ‘Glitter’ from their current release Trophy, out now on Grind Select.

Directed by Sara Montironi, the clip explores the theme of travelling and the inevitable changes that it brings.

“The “Lion” video is about traveling. Finding the means, in order to reach that place. The unconscious place. When it has been reached, it isn’t how you expected it to be. And at the end of the travel, unwittingly you’ve changed,” Montironi said in a statement.

The band added the song is about,”a pursuit of greatness, and how that pursuit can be alienating. The lion stands in as a metaphor for the power hungry politician or the greedy wall street banker, who finds that the view from the top is a lonely one. The director, Sara Montironi, chose to depict a different type of protagonist, whose journey is equally as isolating and self-motivated.”
