It’s not Guy Sebastian who lights up in the ‘Candle’ video, but a young man in a red hoodie on a stroll through the forest.
All seems pretty innocuous; the trees bathed in light as he meanders through the trees accompanied by Guy’s pleasing vocals in the verse.
But when the bass drops and the soundtrack get decidedly down and dirty in the choruses, the scene is suddenly plunged into darkness and our leading man is haunted by a succession of electric neon lights, which illuminate the scene.
That pattern is repeated again, before he happens upon a glowing orb, which he snaffles, before seemingly running from the scene for his life.
It’s a different style of Guy Sebastian video this time around, but then again, ‘Candle’ is also a very different kind of Guy Sebastian single.
