Experienced musician, Christian Parker, shares his cinematic video for his latest indie-folk and Americana single, “Every Passing Mile.” His impassioned song, with a Beatles meets Paul Simon vibe to it, is a narrative around a man who is driven by an unrelenting desire.
This video shares the story of a man who see’s a woman on his journey. He has a relationship with her and while it’s unclear what kind of relationship it is, what is clear is his obsession for her. He thinks of her regularly, with every passing mile.
This women serves as an addiction. She is always with him and he chases her, trying to catch something that doesn’t exists. He carries a piece of her with him, as seen with the white cloth stained with her red lips. “This symbol serves as a reminder of the power she holds over him, and his willingness to carry her with him as if he might use the thought of her as a drug at any moment. ‘Like a train along the tracks,’ the woman in white seems to be destined to collide with him, bringing him relief and pulling him back into an addictive relationship all at once,” shares Christian on the video. “As he attempts to escape this, we see him move further away from society, leaving his own home and eventually winding deep into the woods. When the instrumental solo smoothly rolls in, we are returned to the previous night, where we witness just what he’s running from: the woman in white visited unannounced in the night, pulls him into a trance, blurring the lines between reality and fantasy.”
