Jimmy Brown - 11th July 2011

A very stylish, even iconographic for Alpines' Cocoon by Ryan Hope. He directed the first Alpines video as half of Hope Audikana where the band were a mysterious non-presence. This is similarly stripped-back photographic, but this time he has the duo to work with - particularly strikingly attractive singer Catherine Pockson, the woman with the longest hair in synth-pop. And he makes the most of it with a conceptually strong, sophisticated pop video.

A great showcase for Alpines; a very impressive 'sophomore' effort for Hope's new solo career.
