David Knight - 23rd June 2011

Dry The River's deeply emotional debut No Rest gets an intense treatment from Corin Hardy which puts each bandmember into focus, largely by subjecting them to various kinds of indignity.

Dry The River's deeply emotional debut No Rest gets an intense treatment from Corin Hardy which puts each bandmember into focus, largely by subjecting them to various kinds of indignity. "'No Rest' is their first music video and I felt a responsibility to do justice to such an incredible, powerful song," says Corin, who has been working closely with the band on all aspects of their visuals, including design and artwork. He also created three <a href="http://youtu.be/F_8Hq99_xqI" target="_blank">live teasers</a>, filmed at one of their live shows. "I was determined to try to capture the essence of what I knew about them and their music, visually, and I knew it needed to be a simple effective concept, despite working to a very limited budget. The band were really up for being pushed up to and maybe slightly beyond their limits and it was important that everything that happened to them was real, whilst retaining a sense of ambiguity and limitation in terms of what you see happen - and so that's where we started and finished; I wanted to capture elements of exhaustion, distress, danger and desperation in a beautiful, ritualistic, natural way."
