With the backdrop filled with Brodie Jenkins’ haunting vocals, Cathedrals’ new video for “Just A Game” is absolutely entrancing. Add in dark landscapes, hints of natural light bursting through for a gorgeous and stunning contrast. Both members of the San Francisco duo can be observed over the course of the video, lending their live performance tactics to the screen in front of backdrops that match the soundscape so beautifully, you almost don’t know what to do with yourself. Explains Brodie:

For the “Just a Game” music video, I wanted to capture the darker, anguished side of love. I loved the original Grimm’s fairytales as a kid (still do) and have always had a gothic streak. So visually, I was inspired to combine those influences into our own dark and twisted fairytale. She’s trapped in this story – a beautiful but haunted limbo in which the familiar elements are there, but there is no happy ending and it was all a lie to begin with.
