Earlier this year, Dean Blunt released one of the most captivating, unexpectedly solemn albums of the year with The Redeemer, and today, we have a video for a new song that revisits one of its standout tracks. It’s called “Walls of Jericho Pt.2,” and the video features a silhouetted Blunt, still obsessed and still bitter, singing to a body of water about his expectation of his former lover — who ran away on part one — coming back to him: “I know times can get so hollow/ And I try to leave you be/ But by the time you get to hear this/ You’ll be running back to me.”
The ebbing and flowing tides, the dawn of a new day: the setting signifies hope, but time hasn’t healed his wounds yet. Blunt’s gaze toward the sunrise mostly just sheds light on his lingering misery.
