OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO

Update video link



London Grammar and Bison brought a showstopper to the table over the seasonal break with Rooting For You. Shot on 35mm and lit from above entirely with helium lights, this gorgeous live video is an exercise in minimal one-take perfection. The first half of the track sees singer Hannah Reid stand alone in a wash of darkness as the camera floats around her acapella performance, before light fills the room and reveals a full orchestral backing. A nuanced set of camera movements and understated lighting design help to accentuate the scale and the intimacy of various parts of this haunting performance.

Song Lyrics:

Let winter break
Let it burn 'til I see you again
I will be here with you
Just like I told you I would
I'd love to always love you
But I'm scared of loneliness
When I'm, when I'm alone with you

I know it's hard
Only you and I
Is it all for me?
Because I know it's all for you
And I guess, I guess
It is only you, are the only thing I've ever truly know
So I hesitate, if I can act the same
For you
And my darlin', I'll be rooting for you And my darlin', I'll be rooting for you

And where did she go?
Truth left us long ago
And I need her tonight because
I'm scared of loneliness with you
And I should let it go
But all that is left is my perspective,
broken and so left behind again

I know it's hard
Only you and I
Is it all for me?
Because I know it's all for you
And I guess, I guess
It is only you, are the only thing I've ever truly know
So I hesitate, if I can act the same
For you
And my darlin', I'll be rooting for you And my darlin', I'll be rooting for you
