The second single from their forthcoming debut album, Actor, ‘Berlin’ by Dublin quartet Heroes in Hiding is a cathartically-driven effort exploring “a want for change and a sense of belonging, or lack thereof.”

According to the Joe Carroll-fronted band, “The narrator has become fed up with their surroundings, and fantasises about a new life in Berlin. They are convinced that by moving away they will be able to throw off the shackles of their old life and start afresh, leaving the anxious surroundings of their current world behind.”

Exploring “a ‘moment’ of uncertainty in life – a moment where we are cast in total doubt as to whether our actions were right or not; a moment where we have to decide between our future and our past” the video for ‘Berlin’ drives home Heroes in Hiding’s strongest single effort to date. Have a first look at that below.
