Black Dog Films

Kareem Kalokoh "Rambo" (Leonn Ward, dir.)

After making waves in the fashion world, Leonn Ward continues to impress with ‘Rambo’, the director’s first hip hop video for ATH Kid’s Kareem Kalokoh.

The hotly tipped ATH Kids collective, who i-D credited with “breathing life into Athen’s creative scene” are putting the Greek music scene firmly on the map, with praise from the Fader, Vice, and High Snobriety to name a few.

Maroon 5 f/ Cardi B "Girls Like You" (David Dobkin, dir.)

Every time the camera spins around Adam Levine it's revealed that another notable woman is helping with the lip-sync. The list is massive,and massively impressive,, including pop star Camila Cabello, actress Gal Gadot, gymnast Aly Raisman, talk show star Ellen DeGeneris and most notably, Cardi B — who gets to contribute a verse — and Levine's wife Behati Prinsloo and their daughter.

GHOSTPOET "Woe Is Meee" (Savannah Setten, dir.)

Directed by Savannah Setten, it features a brief cameo from Obaro (Ghostpoet). The idea behind the video was as she explains; "Depicting the darker, emotional response I had to the track led me to build a world around an atypical senior citizen (played by John O'Brien) who at 70, finding himself in a society openly discussing gender neutrality, chooses to address his deepest most insular struggles around sexuality and persona.”

IDER "Learn To Let Go" (Diana Kunst, dir.)

Taking in the gritty charm of post-industrial Hackney Wick, director Diana Kunst paints a picture of youth in East London for IDER.

IDER are North London based R&B duo Megan Markwick and Lily Somerville. With a string of critically acclaimed singles, and two upcoming sold out gigs under their belt the duo are going from strength to strength.

‘Learn To Let Go’ is their first single to be released since signing to Glassnote Records back in August.

J Hus "Spirit" (Hugo Jenkins, dir.)

Following his Mercury Prize nomination for Common Sense, J Hus releases his new video for 'Spirit' from Black Dog Films director Hugo Jenkins.

Shot in Jamestown, Accra, in Ghana, Hugo captures the towns’ energy with some arresting visuals of J Hus amidst the community at work and play.

Of the video Hugo said: “I wanted to capture this spirit but also keep the essence of who J Hus is. Capturing Hus on a miniature journey through Accra, meeting people and ending on an intimate show to me felt like the most authentic approach”.

Grandbrothers "Bloodflow" (Hugo Jenkins, dir.)

Dusseldorf duo Grandbrothers have today shared the first taste of their new record, with Hugo Jenkins' enchanting video for Bloodflow.

The video for Bloodflow is an abstract exploration of memory and family.

Grandbrothers' Sophomore LP ‘Open’, which is to be released on October 20th 2017, explores dimensions at which their debut ‘Dilation' only hinted. The duo has also confirmed live dates including a tour with Bonobo.

Amber Mark "Monsoon" (Joe Alexander, dir.)

The video for Monsoon, directed by Joe Alexander, follows Mark and her late mother’s travels through India. Speaking to Fader, the singer said “When I wrote "Monsoon," I always imagined the music video being shot in India. The song had so much to do with my time in India with my mother as well as leaving her in India during the monsoon season to visit my family in NY. It really was a dream come true when I was given the opportunity to shoot in India."

Richard Thorncroft "You Can't Handcuff The Wind" (Julian Barratt, dir.)

OK. This is very British. And very '80s. Yet, also very awesome. (And, yes, British, '80s and awesome can of course co-exist).

Meet actor Richard Thorncroft, who you "know" as the Sexiest Male TV Detective (1988 and 1989) for his role as Bruce Mindhorn, the truth seeking title character with the robotic eye from nonexistant TV show Mindhorn.

Got it? No? Of course. Thorncraft/Mindhorn is actually Julian Barnett of comedic troupe The Mighty Boosh fame,and Mindhorn is a new parody movie that's like an absurdist, post-modern version of Austin Powers.

"You Can't Handcuff The Wind" is Thorncraft's Hasselhoffian hit single, a blast of "erotic power-rock" produced in conjuction with fellow fictional character, Guitarist Terry Belmondo from jazz rock outfit Subtle Glance. 

Lots more details can be had from the faxed press release, which like everything else here, is ridiculous and awesome.
