Addiction is never pretty. So it’s quite interesting how wonderfully artistic and beautiful the video for Redlight’s “Threshold” came out.

The independently produced music video featuring Melisa Whiskey on vocals follows a man haunted by demons: alcoholism, gambling, drugs, violence. The juxtaposition between the subject matter and the otherwise uplifting tone of the music is jarring, but enjoyable.

You can find “Threshold” on Redlight’s debut album X Colour out this November. Pre-order here.
