Realign - Henry Green

‘Realign’ is expansive and full of drive, it’s a record that captures a journey. Through his lyrics, Henry alludes to the inner search for contentment. The music video is the perfect continuation of that inner world which can be desolate, unforgiving and endless, much like the desert and mountains.

It was important that this journey felt human, and who better to play that human than Henry himself. The concept for the video centres on Henry as he progresses, challenged by the terrain he encounters.

The juxtaposed extreme and expansive terrains became the second character in this narrative, offering unpredictable, remarkable, and metaphorical visuals. The desert, constantly in a state of change as the sands forever reinvent – flowing, barren and endless. The mountains and canyons presenting a different challenge to overcome – rugged, volcanic and formidable. As Henry nears contentment, the desert opens to the ocean where he finds release and clarity.
