Jimmy Brown - 13th July 2012

Mike Baldwin delves deep into his box of tricks and pulls out a conceptual piece of work for Scottish rock band Twin Atlantic's Yes I Was Drunk.

Shot around Glasgow's Queens Park district featuring a cast of characters flying through the air in slow-motion, the promo echoes the introspecitve melancholy in the songs lyrics and instrumentation.

"This is the sense I first got from hearing the song - a kind of beautiful melancholy," says Mike about his Twin Atlantic clip. "People who are stuck in a moment with time deliberately stretched over the course of the promo."
