Sorcha Richardson on the video - "I wish every music video was as fun to shoot as this one. Shark Eyes is a song about a very confusing relationship full of infatuation and false hope that swings between pure exhilaration and total disappointment. Director Olivia McLaughlin, DOP Leon Forrestal and the entire Tiny Ark crew were a dream to work with and captured the delicate balance of that relationship so perfectly.
When I first started thinking about this video, the only thing that I was sure of was that I wanted my friend Lauren Farrell to be my co-star and for the video to follow us on some kind of epic late-night Odyssey. The fact that it led to us pushing Michael Fry (the funniest man in Ireland) around a car park in a trolley on a Monday night was beyond my wildest dreams. An extra special thank you to Carly for dressing us up, all of my friends who showed up to “my party” to be extras, to the house in Templeogue for letting us have a party, and to Anto at the Workmans’ Club for letting us crash karaoke and sing a song that nobody had ever heard. I wish we could do it all over again."
Director Olivia McLaughlin on the video “The song is very visual and introspective, so it was fulfilling to translate this onscreen. The decision was made early on in the process that the relationship we portrayed wouldn’t be explicitly defined, so viewers can bring their own experiences to the piece. Throughout filming, we sought to capture little moments of authenticity, intimacy, and the nuances of female friendship. The energy between Sorcha and Lauren is so palpable and electric, I think they capture this brilliantly”
