Play Video


  • The first single from Dry the River's Alarms in the Heart album was a creative breakthrough for the band. Frontman Peter Liddle explained: "At the time Dry the River were in something of a wilderness, creatively and temporally. For me, 'Everlasting Light' represents the path out of the wilderness - a kind of unlikely moment of clarity where we remembered what it's like to be a band in a room."
  • The band are seen taking on a black belt female judo team in the music visual. "The combative video came from these themes - of getting back up after a setback, dusting ourselves off.," said Liddle. "The black belts are real, and so is the pain."
