Rews battle their demons in the new video for 'Monsters'

Rews have debuted their new video for 'Monsters'.

A powerful song about everyone's inner-critic, it sees the band tackling issues surrounding mental health awareness ahead of their upcoming UK tour.

“I really wanted to produce a creative, thought-provoking video that had a metaphorical representation on the meaning behind Monsters," vocalist Shauna Tohill explains. "Because the song is dark yet empowering one, I was keen to capture something that represented both of those things drawing inspiration from the likes of the Black Mirror series meets Foo Fighters fun.

"It was during the brainstorming session that Callum (director) and I collaborated and came up with the storyline which was to try and tell a story that we can all connect with. That story was about a person (which ended up being me!) who was at a social gathering, finding it hard to fit in because they were feeling held back by those monsters in their head. The person then decides to explore and battle with those monsters.

"Once they are in the depths of the battle - the person notices that another person in the same dark place who is having the same battle with their monsters and with the last shred of energy they have, they pull each other out and help each other heal and overcome the weight of those negative voices. I want it to be a positive message that will help us to reach out and help others who are struggling and also help us all to learn to love ourselves for who we are and tame those self-critical thoughts.”
