Rob Brandon's new video for Sundara Karma's 'She Said' is a 16mm montage of teens preparing for a night out in classic fashion: drink, drugs, facebook, pubs and sexual tension. Intercut with Sundara's performance in a series of close-ups, the video sways between the awkwardness and joy of youth in a nostalgic aesthetic.
A game of hide-and-seek with George Ezra filmed over two days at Cornwall, UK's lush Eden Project eco-attraction. Riff Raff’s Ben Reed has created a beautifully simple and subtle video for George Ezra’s latest track “Barcelona”.
Ben Reed, director: "We wanted to make something that was as soothing and sweet on the eyes as the song is to the ears. An effortless video that just drew you in. I'd been playing a lot of Where's Wally online and watching old David Attenborough episodes and thinking about the time that Coppola directed a movie from a jacuzzi. So we photographed him singing from hundreds of metres away on a giant zoom lens in the tropical environs of the Eden project. We were going to dress him as various plants and hide him, but it felt too outlandish, so we made him fly instead, because everyone should."
A slyly post-modern video that might not change the world, but should keep you engaged as Swim Deep singer Austin Williams navigates a surreal backstage environment in search of meaning (or, maybe just in search of a green screen).
Calum Macdiarmid has just completed ‘Into the Glass’, his ethereal new music video for singer/songwriter Laura Doggett’s latest track from her newly released EP.
The story of escaping an unhealthy relationship is told through a mixture of conceptual narrative and performance, scored by Laura’s unique, distinctive voice that many in the industry have described as ‘spine-tingling’.
Irrum, director: "The band said that they felt like they were ready to shave their heads and go to war with this new record, and they wanted a video that represented that feeling. It felt like the perfect opportunity to reimagine a completely new world, rather than a representation of psychedelia we have seen before. I came up a concept that solely focused on an evolution of color; a giant spinning wheel that diffused colour to birds, botanics, and statues of the band themselves.
A strange lunch date with death himself that veers from smoky to sexy to surreal... Here's hoping it's not an invitiation to that 27 Club.
Calum Macdiarmid, director: “The 27 Club video was inspired by my obsessions with vintage wet plate photography and the visual aesthetics of French New Wave cinema. I wanted to create a film that was all about bold compositions and manipulation of shadows, so shooting in black and white felt like the most natural fit.
Chloe was a total gift. She was so committed to the concept from the get go. Even the pigs' brains and ants didn’t seem to phase her. Which was lucky given that the ants didn’t always behave themselves, scuttling away, trying to avoid the light, as soon as we put them on Chloe. They weren’t shy about reappearing all over us long after shooting had wrapped though."
Pop princess Florrie and iconic retailers H&M are the perfect visual fit for Florrie's latest single "Too Young To Remember". The video depicts youth iconography and shows us the encyclopedia of being young. It’s a fun, colourful, rhythmic skip through 80’s pop culture imagery. Directed by Mathy & Fran. Enjoy here.
