Singer-songwriter Ultan Conlon has released his new music video for ‘The Golden Sands’, taken from the album Songs Of Love So Cruel.
Directed by Oisin MacCoille and starring Barry Ward (Jimmy’s Hall) the video for ‘The Golden Sands’ moves from monotonous daily routine to sudden joyous abandon and release.
Using colour and tone to help the shift in mood feel natural, Ward’s central character is confined to small dull spaces only to be given space within the frame during the video’s captivating finale. All of which conveyed through the actor’s fully committed performance and some beautiful cinematography.
Scored by Ultan Conlon’s always personal and musically vibrant sound, MacCoille’s direction, Barry Ward’s strong screen presence and Conlon’s vivid songwriting blend together to result in a perfectly formed whole.
