Director James Booth took the task of visualising all four tracks for The 1975′s ‘Facedown EP’, creating four monochrome films that flit between performance promo and ambient storytelling. As a whole, they fit very nicely together indeed, bringing a theme and style to band that fits well with both the bigger pop songs and the more delicate moments.
James says: “I’ve been working closely with the 1975 since their inception, and basically these videos were made on a really tiny budget as it’s the bands first release. The aim was to make the four videos work together as a simple series, I tried to maintain a certain style throughout all the videos to compliment this particular EP as a whole.
“They are a band who really care about their aesthetic and see their videos as an important part of this, hopefully these four videos are a simple first step in working together with them to create more ambitious projects as the band develops.”
