Sam Howard’s ‘White Chalk’ is brought to visual reality beautifully in the music video directed by Sebastian Nevols and Robin Ockleford. It takes the song’s breathful and minimal choral style into full life in such a wonderful fashion. The song’s quiet bits are given stimulus, there’s a gentle pace to proceedings suitable to such a reflective piece of music and the overall effect, (as an great music video should do) is it re-inforces how great this song is. It’s a free download.
