“The First Day, to me, has a real sense of freedom, in the music and the lyrics.” – Daniel Brereton

Daniel directs a part dream/part reality music video where we follow an unashamedly light-hearted character as they run and dance through a small town, forgetting that anyone else exists. Along the way the character meets people that symbolise different moments of their life, as if they are seeing themselves in the past or the future.

Daniel mixes fantasy with reality, and there’s an otherworldly feel to the video. A heightened feeling of escapism.
