Survival Guide Brings The Fear With New Music Video ‘One To One’: BUST Premiere

by Kelly Walters

Indie-electronic band Survival Guide’s song “One To One” is a haunting and emotional study of the dark side of relationships. Today, we’re premiering the brand new music video from the band. It’s just as foreboding as the song itself.

Survival Guide features vocalist and keyboardist Emily Whitehurst, who said this particular song sparks something in her when she performs it live.

“This song is one of my darker, slower ones, yet somehow I get an energy from it during the live show.” Whitehurst said. “It’s one of my bassiest songs too, so maybe that’s why.”

The video complements the lyrics, which describe the multiple sides to every relationship.

“As a twist, we [Jim Agius and Tim Rose of Dogfilm and I], decided to make the video show how there may be a side of the relationship that’s hidden.” Whitehurst said. “Our main goal was to make the viewer feel creeped out by leaving my character in the dark. It reminds me of an old ‘don’t open that door!’ type film.”

“Funnily enough, I actually did feel a little creeped out seeing that roomful of photos — Jim found every one of those photos of me online. I helped cut & tape them up (which took lots of hours), then when I stood back to see the result, it was pretty overwhelming.”
