Emily King just released an exquisite video for “Distance”. The song is amazing and the visuals are captivating. I could not help analyzing the vivid vintage look of each shot. I don’t know about you, but I love when an artist’s music video matches the feel of the song. Kudos to director, Paul Jung for capturing the emotion accurately.
