‘The Sender’ is rooted in dichotomy between the two opposing sides of any matter. Ones that define our values, and ones that define how we interact with each other in the world. The lyrics describe someone desperately trying to envision their life through another’s eyes. Seeing life through this lens ultimately leads to rejection, and the song ends with:
“There’s no fate I’ve come to claim.
Just a bed beneath the weight of the world”.
Ghostly Times’ newest music video was directed by Jerry Brown Jr., a multi-talented director, producer, writer, editor and cinematographer.
The video starts with an assumed protagonist, played by Darby Harmon, desperately trying to uncover the truth about this ethereal object. Once discovered, the object quickly becomes an obsession until it displaces her. The band, searching for the same truth are equally enthralled when they stumble upon the object. Darby retraces her steps and is unsettled by what she discovers. Seemingly able to harness the power of the object, she forces the band away from the object and grabs it to escape.
The video ends with an epic chase through the woods and a final face-off. Darby would rather destroy the object that allows the band to have it; ultimately destroying it, sending the group through a time-warp, back to the initial encounter, but with a slight twist.
