Following a competition on Genero.tv to make a video for Keane's next single Black Rain, Andy Marsh not only won $5,000 but also had his entry premiered on internet music channel VEVO!
"The video was shot at an abandoned RAF base in Hampshire on a tiny budget and was only made possible by the love and dedication of the entire cast and crew who worked tirelessly with me to turn this idea into a reality".
Keane also expressed delight at his winning entry:
"We loved Andy Marsh's video for Black Rain. There's a heartbreaking sense of a young boy's dreams gone awry, a yearning for innocent times and high hopes, of love and kindness remembered in the face of violence and fear.
Of course, I can't say whether that's what was intended at all! But either way the atmosphere of this story fits beautifully with the sense of the song, and even the sense of Strangeland as a record.
"The ghostly and surreal mood of the video also works perfectly with the feel of the music itself - sound and visuals complement each other and give each other more power, which is the ultimate achievement for a music video."
