Informed by a line in the chorus - ‘My dons going straight to the topfloor', the video for Jelani Blackman’s ‘Lockjaw’ sees camera moving up a staircase at an undisclosed location, constantly finding Jelani on each flight in a fake one-shot. It’s a technique based concept presented in a very rugged manner. Camera moves hand-held at all times and without a clear sense of horizon at moments, creating a somewhat disorientating and claustrophobic feel as we keep moving up but never really go anywhere. - Joao
The video documents one of the illegal car meet ups that happen on Sunday nights around London. It captures a beautiful melting-pot of people who are here to have a good time and who proudly display their cars. As day tunes into night, the setting of this suburban industrial carpark grows into a surreal world of neon lights and rain. Like in a dream, smoky burnouts and drifting donuts take place one after the other and all night long, set to the pulsating music of Jon Cooper (Turtle) and ethereal vocals of Eliza Shaddad.
Sônge embodies a strange alien goddess who is worshipped by the population of an industrial neon city. The goddesses' long blue underarm hair comes as the centrepiece of her power in ‘I Come From Pain’ directed by Zhang+Knight.
"Last Orders reflects on the idea of fate, how every small action plays it part in the 'bigger picture.' I am a huge fan of gritty British cinematography and in this video I wanted to explore mixing old and gritty with the contemporary. The track itself is very descriptive with vivid dark undertones. I wanted to create a narrative that suggestively explores this, connecting the story and performance into one 'big picture."
