"Der Aufenthalt unter der schwebenden Last ist verboten" - Pathos Legal

It's about calmness, a clear mind and letting go of heavy thoughts: the music video of the German songwriter duo Pathos Legal for the single DER AUFENTHALT UNTER DER SCHWEBENDEN LAST IST VERBOTEN which was released on 15th November 2019. This yearning for calmness and clarity reflects visually in the beautiful landscapes of Zandvoort aan Zee in the Netherlands and is captured in the accompanying minimalist and aesthetically staged music video. The “Cloudy Mind”, a person with a big cloud on his shoulders, leads us to the white sand beaches and into the wide dunes for a moment to breathe deeply in an ever faster turning world.
