Health Scare, the new video from London singer songwriter Tom Visser, is NOT about Covid-19.
By Graeme Smith
The song was written well before the pandemic and speaks to memory and generational relationships. Tom delivers his musings through poetic yet concrete language, urgent vocals and simple piano accompaniment. After the raw opening verse and chorus, drums and bass kick in, adding a bluesy element to the composition.
The animated video, created by artist James Moore, is a little on the surreal style, with disembodied anthropomorphic organs floating in stark black and white. It speak directly to the anxious feeling Tom feels about his physical forms. A feeling we all share if we’re being honest. You can check it out below.
