A beautiful meditation on the passage of time and what we notice when we pay attention to the mundane by Toronto-born, Los Angeles-based director and photographer Luke Orlando. The video came about during a road trip to Montréal, the city Orlando went to college. But what began as a 2 week visit quickly turned into 2 months of couch-surfing and nostalgic self-reflection. As Orlando explains:

“in that period of being lost, I found myself committing to making a music video for my friend Gabo (aka SmilesWithTeeth). The track is called ‘Love’ and right off the bat I was like ‘no way am I making a video about love between two people…’ so naturally I shifted to making a video about the spaces we love and how our love manifests in the objects we hold on to and the meaning we imbue them with. It’s the result of revisiting places I spent my formative years in, and encountering tangible nostalgia in the small details of my old home.”
