suitor debut video for ‘Deep Sleep’ exclusively on Punktastic

By Renette van der Merwe

Since releasing their beautiful debut ‘folklore‘ back in October last year, suitor have been busy. They’ve not only taken the live scene in both Tennessee and Atlanta by storm whilst putting the finishing touches on their anticipated second EP, but they’ve also been working hard on creating the video to their lead single, ‘Deep Sleep’. On the theme, singer Casey Smith says:

“‘Deep Sleep’ as a video conveys the battle of addiction and temptation; literally in the form of alcoholism, or something else entirely based on perspective. Drug abuse, codependency, self medication, whatever it takes to find respite in a depressive or anxious reality. That solution or “fix” is portrayed in the siren character. For the wandering male lead, it is the only option, the only path that leads to a salvation without despair, in her embrace. Even if it means the end for him, he cant resist the cure, allowing her to pull him beneath the surface, finally at peace. He wakes, stunned to realize that it was only a dream; a temporary escape. Where does he go from here?”
