Mellah shares new video for ‘Old Friend’

The self-directed clip accompanies the very personal track from new EP ‘Liminality’.

Earlier in the month, Peckham-based newcomer Mellah (aka Liam Ramsden) streamed his debut EP ‘Liminality’, a refreshing collection filled with up-front lyricism and mixes of indie-pop and sleek electronica, which followed on from his singles ‘Round’ and ‘Nada’. He’s now released a new, self-directed clip for ‘Old Friend’, which Liam describes as his “most personal song to date”. Speaking to The FADER, he said: “It’s about depression. A subject, I find, commonly experienced but rarely granted any social grace. It’s maybe unorthodox to refer to depression as a friend but I have always experienced a strange familiarity, even comfort within it, despite its crippling weight. It’s often easier to withdraw inwards, at least in the short term”. The video was shot on an 8mm camera, giving the whole piece a very vintage feel as we journey across the sun-dappled desert, on to the beach, into seaside caves and through the forest to the bases of mountains. It’s a beautiful, nostalgic, and intimate watch befitting of the song itself. Watch the video for ‘Old Friend’ below.
