As a song that is almost out-of-worldly, the imagery of London Grammar’s new single “Big Picture”, shows us exactly what the title states within the few minutes of the singles music video.
As the song explores love, the lyrics uncover a darker meaning of a toxic relationship between two people.
Only now do I see the big picture
But I swear that these scars are fine
Only you could have hurt me in this perfect way tonight
I might be blind, but you’ve told me the difference
Between mistakes and what you just meant for me
These lyrics, backed by their traditional soft sound, of guitar, keyboard and Hannah Reid’s angelic vocals create an almost ethereal vibe.
Accompanied by the imagery of the music video for “Big Picture”, the theme of a bigger picture is put into a different perspective.
Images of the stars, the sky, northern lights playing on the face of the earth, clouds, trees and galaxies create a conversation of what is really important. Although you may have lost a special relationship with someone you loved, there is so much around you and so much beauty within the world- as well as better and bigger things coming your way. The song and its music video shows the finer things in life which go unnoticed or unappreciated.
