Dublin singer/songwriter Robert O’Connor has released a new music video in time for the holidays, dedicated to “the less fortunate at Christmas”.
Rob O’Connor has just released the video for his brand new single River
Shot to accompany his version of the 1971 Joni Mitchell classic, the video depicts a somber Robert aimlessly wandering the streets of Dublin, with out-of-focus shoppers navigating their way around the singer, who appears at times frozen on the spot on a crowded Grafton Street.
Speaking about the video, directed by David Duggan, Robert said: “It felt misguided to make a typical lip sync video for a song like this. I wanted it to show me feeling out of sync with the environment I was in. For a lot or people, Christmas is the hardest time of year for so many reasons — and most of the media messages we see are hyper-positive — so this is a little nod to those who are struggling to feel festive”.
