Here's the first of at least two new videos for Marmite-named young British bands coming out of the achingly hip prodco Soixante Quinze in Paris.
Flashguns' Passions of a Different Kind by Jean-Philippe Blunt and Thom Humphreys
Jean-Philippe Blunt and Thom Humphreys are long-time friends of the up-and-coming Flashguns and now, fresh out of film school - and with the imminent release of the band's debut album - they have created a splendid video for Passions Of A Different Kind: a bracingly visceral jaunt around wintry Exmoor, with a couple of appropriately large hounds.
Flashguns recorded their eponymous debut album in a dilapidated barn in the bleak winter of rural Somerset. "The landscape played a large part in the recording of the album so we wanted to mirror this with the video - it's very much a character in itself," says Jean-Philippe. "Filming took place over three days in the barren depths of Exmoor National Park. Huddled in a Landrover and armed with both a Canon 5D and a Canon 550D, Exmoor was our oyster. Two cameras allowed for simultaneous shooting, one capturing 25p while the other 50p.
"There is meaning lurking somewhere, and in keeping with a long cinematic tradition of meat as metaphor, perhaps it is for the audience to decide."

The new one for Leon Jean-Marie is another good example of how Ross and Bugsy of OneInThree deliver fine, innovative graphic ideas.
About five minutes ago I'd never heard of Fol Chen. Now, having discovered that they're somewhat reminiscent of the super-cool and gorgeous Joy Zipper, they're my favourite new band.
