Jimmy Brown - 28th June 2012

Emile Rafael's curious promo for newcomers The Turpentine Ray is set in a room covered in extraordinary wallpaper, with the band looking on deadpan and emotionless - in stark contrast to the singalong folk soundtrack.

"I was really keen to keep the video simple and unvarnished" explains Emile "very much akin with the folk music tradition and introduce the band in portrait style referencing the 20th century DIY postcards in America".
