Junip have released the video for Your Life Your Call, the second instalment in a two-part series leading up to the release of Junip’s self-titled album on April 22.
Director Mikel Cee Karlsson explains: “The idea was to make a short film divided into two parts where each part is influenced by a separate song but still maintains to create a whole. The videos tell the story of a tormented old man, stuck in a monotonous, loveless relationship. A situation that perhaps was not his choice, or preference to begin with. The old man is simply like all of us, a person influenced by the ideas and beliefs of others which also, unavoidably, influences his choices in life. This realisation is what he eventually tries to break free from.
“The story is partly told on a subconscious level where fragments of memory along with subjective fears and dreams are manifested, and just as relevant as anything else in the “real world” to comprehend the characters, and their actions. It is the experience of life in all it’s dark and comical absurdity.”
Your Life Your Call is the second single to be taken from Junip’s self-titled forthcoming second album which is out April 22 on City Slang.
