Nive released this moving animated music video that examines the issues of depression and mental illness in an interesting and unique way.
In the video, we see a girl suspended in an imaginary world. She hovers around, as words that describe her mental state surround her. Phrases related to her depression and anxiety fly around her head, keeping her awake throughout the night.
At the end of the video, it’s revealed that all of this is going on inside the girl’s head and that she’s actually sitting in bed at 5 in the morning. The video looks to show people what it’s like to suffer from sleep deprivation as a result of anxiety. Often, people can struggle to fall asleep as they’re overwhelmed by negative thoughts as they sit in bed. That also has the effect of making their day-to-day lives worse, as they try and function on only a few hours of sleep. It’s a moving video that brings to life the tricky concept of insomnia, a condition that that a lot of people often misunderstand.
