Dax released his latest track 'Dear Alcohol' last month. Along with the emotive lyrics and very personal journey, Dax gave the world the above visuals to enhance the meaning and motive behind this track. Opening with Dax appearing to literally be drowning in alcohol, we see the typography of a message. "Dear Alcohol, I don't think you're as bad as what they say. Everything else in this world is temporary so why does it even matter if I drink you anyway..." giving us an insight into his existential demons. We later see Dax floating, suggesting the freedom and detachment he has felt when he's drunk. Dax let us know that he stopped drinking after he wrote this song.
