With the release of their highly anticipated sophomore EP The Fear via Outerloop Records today (read our review here), Night Argent have dropped a thrilling music video for their single “Dreamcatcher”. “Dreamcatcher” is a song about facing your fears and striving for what you want out of life. People become so blinded by fear of failure that it limits their own potential. This track sends a message that by facing your fears you not only grow as an individual, but eventually realize how pointless it is to be afraid. The video metaphorically finds the viewer watching a girl within a nightmarish scene, as her fears flood the room and she battles the demons inside.
Frontman Chase Manhattan elaborates on the concept and production of the video for “Dreamcatcher,” and how it connects to the overall concept of The Fear:
“When we approached coming up with the treatment for the ‘Dreamcatcher’ music video, we really wanted to shoot it as an homage to the horror genre, but with our own little twist. We also really wanted it to reflect not only the song, but the concept behind our new EP The Fear itself. There’s a quote by Mark Twain my dad would always share with me, that has stuck with me to this day, ‘Do the thing you fear most, and the death of fear is certain.’ The main message behind this video and our EP as a whole is a continuation of that, overcome your fear, don’t let being afraid stop you from discovering what you’re truly capable of.” – Chase Manhattan
