Jimmy Brown - 1st Mar 2012

In his first video for over a year, Nez delivers his promo for Birdy's sensitive reading of Phoenix's 1901 - a very modern tale of love and heartbreak in East London.

Shot on and around Brick Lane, this is a marvellously told romantic tale of a decidedly imperfect hipster couple that rings very true. And London looks quite marvellous too...

In short, awesome work by Nez. On yer bike, Richard Curtis...
