SOAK (aka the 19-year-old singer/songwriter from Northern Ireland named Bridie Monds-Watson) has released a new video for "Reckless Behavior," a song found on her debut album, Before We Forgot How to Dream, which is out now via Rough Trade. Bob Gallagher directed the touching clip, which centers on a suicidal teen girl who forms an unlikely friendship with a crafty elderly woman.

Gallagher commented on the video in a press release: "When I first saw SOAK perform a few years ago, the thing that struck me most was that there is a really tangible sense of empathy to Bridie's songwriting. You get the impression that she's writing for someone, in a way that's genuinely very caring and reassuring. I tried to get that sense of empathy across in the older character played by Fiona York; she is a thief so she's very observant. I think she sees elements of herself in the younger character played by Dani Hiro. The video is about what two people observe in each other and how that makes them relate in a way that transcends their difference in age or their backgrounds."
