Irish rockers Kodaline muse about the passing of time in “One Day,” a song from the band’s debut album, In a Perfect World. In the new clip for the track, visual artist Shiloh Smith joins forces with their colorful words, creating a watercolor scene in time-lapse format.
Steady guitars build as singer Steve Garrigan’s melancholy croon bemoans relying on other people’s opinions for validation. The camera captures Smith’s paint-stained hands as they add life to a mountain scene with a couple seated in a parked car in the foreground.
“In a superficial world, it’s easy to get lost sometimes; it’s important to stay true to yourself,” Garrigan tells Rolling Stone. “Don’t waste your life trying to be someone else. . . If you have a skeleton in your closet, you may as well make it dance,” Garrigan says.
Kodaline launched their first national headlining tour at the Austin City Limits Festival on October 6th, and are trekking across the country throughout November before kicking off a U.K. and European tour.
