Music video about mental health for British rock band

Graphite Records is looking to commission a music video for The Wildhearts' new single, Diagnosis.

About the song

The theme of the track is mental health.

Idea

Considering performance video with cutaways to actors.

Specifically Joe Gilgun in mind, with a brilliant face, simply performing a gamut of expressions/emotions associated with depression/mental illness. From sadness and inertia to anger.

Style

Any film style is welcome, we're open to your ideas.

Lyrics

On a council estate in an invisible kitchen
Hides a mother of three and she’s running out of patience
She got her name on a list, getting tired of waiting
She’s not even sure if anybody is listening

Read ‘em and weep, you’re asleep at the wheel
The system is fucked and your treatment’s corrupting the deal

You are not your diagnosis
You’re not that prescription in your hand
You are not your diagnosis
Simplified for them to understand

You’re not an animal
We’re not animals
I’m not an animal
I am a human being

You’re not an out of touch text
In an out of date textbook
One cure fits all, if it’s to justify the letters on the name
On the plaque upon the wall
But if they looked a bit harder
And if they dug a bit deeper
Or if they came a bit cheaper
They’d see a congenital glitch
Not a burden on the rich.

Read ‘em and weep…

About the band
For 3 decades The Wildhearts have remained at the forefront of the British rock scene. From their classic debut album ‘Earth Vs’ (voted number one album of the year in Kerrang! back in 1993, and number 20 in the best rock albums of all time in a Kerrang! Special in 2006), through to now with the release of 'Renaissance Men', their first full-length studio album in 10 years, their creative output and legendary live shows have been second to none.

Extended bio attached to this brief.
