Sam Hill - 6th Aug 2012

Shot on a nature reserve just outside Edinburgh, David Lemm's promo for Zed Penguin's debut single Heathens is a hazy, dreamlike affair with some interesting transparency and plenty of scope for interpretation. David describes it as a "symbolic battle between creativity and a force trying to block it."

A great accompaniment to Zed Penguins fuzzy shoegaze music, the video shows three ethereal woman sculpting figures in the wilderness, pursued by a sinister masked man intent on manically destroying their works. David seems to have picked an excellent time to film, catching a wonderful Scottish sunset that looks pretty special.
