Jimmy Brown - 7th Mar 2013

Shot over two days in LA and Palm Springs, Bastille singer Dan Smiths flees Los Angeles and its strange-eyed inhabitants to the calmer confines of the desert in Jesse John Jenkins' promo for Pompeii.

Producer Brett Webb explains: "Jesse wanted to capture the dramatic change in landscape you can get in California going from LA to the desert".

At the time of writing, Pompeii is currently number 2 in the UK singles chart with their debut album sitting pretty at both number 1 and 2 on Itunes.
