Having shared his When The Darkness Comes EP earlier this year, singer/songwriter JP Cooper has finally shared the visual for a track taken taken from that release, ‘Closer’.
A track about the desire to spend more time with his son, JP’s evocative lyricism on ‘Closer’ has pulled at the heart strings of its listeners; most of all director, Drew Cox, whose interpretation of the song touches on the topics of mental health, the loss of a child and the need for communication.
Starring Nicholas Pinnock (Fortitude, Captain America) in the leading role, he is seen in turmoil after the loss of his son at child-birth, struggling with reality and exhibiting signs of severe internal struggle. Hard-hitting and truly touching, the ‘Closer’ video portrays the issue of suppressed male emotion and JP has asked that viewers are made aware of CALM, a charity which he supports in its ability to raise awareness of male mental health and the need to ask for help. The video will also be adapted into a short film, which will feature the When the Darkness Comes EP as it’s soundtrack.
