Take Today Unveil Music Video For Soaring New Single “Lifeline”
If you want to start your week with some huge riffs, vocals with a fantastic range and a huge breakdown or two, then Take Today’s new single is exactly what you need. Lifeline has all these elements and more, making it essential listening from the Glasgow five piece.
For the video, Take Today took to the beautiful area of Glencoe and recruited their good friend Gustavis Macaulay (of the band Dancing With Dakota), along with Emily Lynne Wallace to star as the actors in the video. Explaining a bit more about both Lifeline itself and the video for the song, Take Today frontman Paul Daly had this to say:
“Fighting for something that you know is worth fighting for, no matter what life throws you, you are going to need to be strong and follow your heart and do what’s right, the two actors are playing a couple and this represents a time that I went through when you always felt like no matter what you done, it just wasn’t enough.”

The video for Lifeline was filmed by Gordon Campbell of 86 Media.
