Singer/ songwriter Humphrey Milles unveils a thought-provoking and truly stunning video for his new love song 'Climbing My Tree' taken from his recently released debut album 'Tall Stories'.
Directed by Bella Monticelli-McTiernan (Tom Odell's 'Another Love'), the video begins in black and white and is a kaleidoscopic montage of various images relating to nature (such as trees, birds, honeycomb, mountains and waterfalls) and human nature (such as a woman performing self-flagellation as a religious ritual and images of brain scans) all with a ghostly backdrop of Humphrey singing. After a building crescendo, there's a burst of colour and more evocative imagery symbolising all manner of human emotion. The song is a melodious acoustic number with a simple, repetitive guitar riff that's bound to stick in your head for several hours. Coupled with some ambient harmonies and poetic lyrics, it definitely makes for a great chill-out tune for the summer.
With tracks of this quality, it's no wonder that Humphrey has made quite a name for himself with stage appearances alongside the likes of Amy Winehouse, KT Tunstall, The Magic Numbers, Snow Patrol, Ed Harcourt and Michele Stodart. He has also been championed by a number of radio stations such as Yorkshire FM, BBC Radio Ulster and BBC 6Music.
