Glow

Mellt's music video for their song "Glow" metaphorically represents ones internal struggle between modern technology-based life, with a more primal state of being. This is done visually by exploring two characters inside two worlds; a man in a modern world, and a woman in a primal world. These characters are able to connect through chests that create a portal into each others worlds when both opened. They travel into each others environments, and in the end wind being up stuck together in the natural world.
