This is our third collaboration with Steve, and as usual, its an honour and a privilege. Happy to let us roam free within the medium, here is what director/ writer Brad Murnane had to say on the project - "The idea for the clip was to create something with simplistic honesty and totally stripped back, no gimmicks or tricks. The juxtaposition of the songs lyrics to the imagery was an essential place to explore these characters, allowing for them to express emotions in its simplest form. We often are torn between the idea of what we perceive ourselves to be and the actual self. That the distance between these two ideals, often leaves us in a constant state of longing. These characters, though never appearing in the same place, are connected through a chain of relative experiences"

Steve goes into detail about the song and its creation - "It's more or less a metaphor for the seemingly constant struggle to find yourself and find purpose in what you do. Most of the time we only remember good experiences, but I think it's also the bad experiences that really make us who we are. The song is about taking risks and stepping closer to where you we want to be.

"It's also a duet which features my good friend Jess Lean from The Brains Trust on vocals.  We were living together at the time of recording and I asked Jess to sing some harmonies on a few tracks. When I heard the second verse that she had written for Final Place - I was blown away - and it completely changed the dynamic of the song for the better."
