Joy Crookes "Since I Left You (Demo)" (Leonn Ward, dir.)

After directing the Hindu-inspired ‘Don’t Let Me Down’, Leonn Ward once again teams up with rising UK singer Joy Crookes.

In the heart-breaking new video for ‘Don’t Let Me Down’, Leonn captures Crookes at her most vulnerable, leaving enough space for the sparse ballad to unfold.

It’s a captivating performance from Crookes and shows why she’s so hotly tipped

Joy Crookes "Don't Let Me Down" (Leonn Ward, dir.)

London singer Joy Crookes returns with a Hindu-inspired video from Black Dog FIlms director Leonn Ward.

Following up from her acclaimed 2017 ‘Influence’ EP, ‘Don’t Let Me Down’ is a soulful ode to the breakdown of a relationship. Drawing on Crookes’ Indian heritage, Leonn Ward’s video is a simple, and powerful piece of film.

Speaking to i-D the singer said, “the video was inspired by the Hindu goddess Lakshmi… the song itself came from a vulnerable place, and for me, these arms show my strength in the situation and how I overcame it”.

Moss Kena "Silhoutte" (Ruby+Boya, dir.)

Black Dog Films diretcor duo Ruby+Boya have diretced their second video for rising r&b star Moss Kena.

Speaking to Wonderland Magazine, singer Kena said; "’Silhouette’ is about breaking out of an intense relationship, “Stepping out into the light of new possibilities and casting a shadow over the past. Ruby & Boya who I have worked with before really captured the sentiment and spirit of the song in the video which is always a hard thing to do.” 

Nothing But Thieves "Forever and Ever More" (Ivana Bobic, dir.)

A young man goes on holiday alone, and as his agitated demeanour suggests, he is not like other boys...

Ivana Bobic's video for Nothing But Thieves casts a spell where we are intrigued to know more about the young man (played by Ceallach Spellman) who heads for the packaged holiday hotel, with something other on his mind other than fun in the sun.

Moss Kena "Square One" (Holly Blakey, dir.)

Avant Garde Director and Choreographer Holly Blakey directs a promo for rising artist Moss Kena’s track “Square One.” The video is visceral, a choreographic interplay of misplacement of power. In Blakey’s words "ambiguity, and the idea that we never find where power truly lies, is at the heart of this new video. Power moves on and on—nobody knows where it stops or where it began.” The track Square One marks the beginning of mysterious artist Kena’s more public career having come up through the Soundcloud underground.

MØ "When I Was Young" (J.A.C.K., dir.)

It's MØ vs MØ vs death itself in this dreamlike video inspired by Edvard Munch painting The Dance Of Life.

MØ: “I'm so happy to present this video because it feels very true to the song and to who I am. It was inspired by a painting called ‘The Dance Of Life’ by one of my favorite artists, Edvard Munch. It’s an illustration of three women—one in white, one in red and one in black—and tells a story about three stages of human life: youth, maturity, and old age. I was always drawn to this image as a kid due to its simple symbolism and emotion and have been dying to do a video that could reflect on it. Since ‘When I Was Young’ is all about nostalgia and reflecting on life—especially the past, but also the now and the future—it just seemed like the perfect time to do it." [via YouTube]

Everything Everything "Can't Do" (Holly Blakey, dir.)

For Everything Everything ‘Can’t Do’ Holly loved the idea of creating something dark, a horror film of sorts to harness the energy of the track in another light. She wanted to use dirt, creating a world seemingly locking it’s characters inside... it felt fitting due to the current political climate to create an inescapable place, more and more people being reborn, turning into things they never imagined. The band are represented in the form of masks which add to the surreal feel of the film.
