Brock Neal Roberts' deceptively simple video for singer-songwriter Berwyn disrupts a straightforward performance with glitching FX and then suddenly plunging into darkness.

It's an effective way to express the anxiety and doubt that overshadows the hopes and dreams expressed in the autobiographical Glory.

BROCK NEAL ROBERTS:

"The video distorts the standard, seemingly relaxed, nature of shot at home music videos. By manipulating the digital form I wanted to create an alternate world in which you could actually see the haunting emotions of the track. Using the textures created by lagging internet and buffer speeds we enter the same dark place that the lyrics come from, giving a self shot video that strips away the performative element and gets in further into that real feeling."
