Humphrey Milles has now unveiled the poignant video for his upcoming single 'Not Enough' due out on December 3rd 2012 ahead of the release of his new album 'Tall Stories' which is due out next year.
It features some kind of meeting led by a fairly dubious organiser who encourages the group to participate in team building and trust exercise such as hugging one another and catching each other as they fall backwards. The leader appears to sexually harass one of the participants who looks a little vulnerable but the video is mainly focused on one girl who is a little disconnected from the rest of the group; for example, preferring to eat her lunch by herself in a toilet cubicle. With the distinct lack of bright colour and the alternating speeds of the video, it reflects the melancholy and ominousness of the song with its steady drumbeat and consistent, slightly emotionless vocals that reflect the dispirited mood of some of the video cast's moods.
Milles is currently supporting The Magic Numbers' Michele Stodart on her November tour which will draw to a close in Nottingham this Friday. He has also recently released his free track 'Breathe' which, although it is a great listen, will not feature on his upcoming album.
