Glass Animals "Tokyo Drifting" (rubberband., dir.)

A multi-media video that's inspired by 90's-fighter-video games, stop motion animation and comic books.

rubberband., directors:  "We had a lot of fun taking outdated processes (everything from 16mm long exposure stop-animation to step printing) and blending them together in a relatively post heavy way. There’s a lot of vfx in the video that you wouldn’t notice outright. We sort of loved the idea of taking what most people would consider laughably old school and bringing it to life with people who are used to working with slick, CG heavy imagery. We just wanted to make something that translated all these influences and references into something original. And we feel pretty good about where we landed.

However long you plan to shoot stop motion, we’d recommend making it longer."

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.
