Toronto-based electro-pop duo Once A Tree release their new video 'For You,' off their current Thousand Lives EP. The video features actors Maggie Mae Taylor and Brendt Thomas Diabo who play a young couple who are deeply in love, but battling alcohol and drug addiction. The underlying theme of enabling, dependency, self loathing and insecurity are a topics that many people can relate too and identify with. The video was produced and directed by Once A Tree and shot in their hometown of Toronto.
"The video shows a young couple, each battling their own inner demons. It’s a struggle we all face in our own lives, whether it be in a romantic relationship, friendship, or otherwise. But instead of perpetuating self-loathing and worthlessness, we’re hoping to relay a message of self-love and empowerment.” -Jayli Wolf (Once A Tree)
“Using actors, instead of starring in the videos as we’ve done in the past, allowed us a certain level of creative control and artistic license that we wouldn’t have had otherwise.” - Hayden John Wolf (Once A Tree)
The video follows 3 previous self-directed videos for ‘Howling,’ ‘Take Me,’ and ‘Lie To Me,’ off their debut EP ‘Thousand Lives’ via Foreseen Entertainment.
