Editors "Barricades" (Hi-Sim, dir.)

Hi-Sim's 'Barricades' sees a meticulously crafted array of machines gradually falling out of sync over the course of the song.

Chris Hawkes, Hi-Sim director: “I was thinking about the mechanical nature of music – looping patterns of sound. This got me thinking about these amazing machines – brimming with little processes that perform precise repetitive functions. it is the imperfections, though, that bring about a warm human element, so I decided to see what would happen when they fail and the smallest of errors become catastrophic.”

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.”
