Director Statement

The longing and desperation are palpable in the lyrics. Dog in the Night tells the story of the singer being enamored of a good friend, though that friend does not share his romantic feelings. Of course, anyone who has been in that position (all of us?) knows that it’s never that simple. You can hear him holding out hope, choosing to float between friendship and possibly dating, and torturing himself in the process. I chose dusk in the city to convey that liminal space between relationship labels. I had the notion of an angler fish roaming aimlessly in an abyss, hoping that another angler would find his light and end his loneliness. I also wanted to play on the nervous and lonely tenor of the track with images of Angler Boy surrounded by darkness, isolated in the pool of light coming from the lure on his head. The ghastly head expresses how he feels he has nothing in common with anybody around him except for Angler Girl.
