Jimmy Brown - 26th Mar 2013

A collaborative project commissioned through Radar Music Videos, Glasvegas frontman James Allan joins forces with Rob Hackett to direct the promo to new single I'd Rather Be Dead (Than Be With You) from the indie rockers' forthcoming album Later...When The TV Turns To Static.

The atmospheric piano ballad becomes larger-that-life when huge footage is projected over the band - set in a large empty space - taking on an effective psychedelic sheen. "It was a great whirlwind experience, from winning the pitch to finishing the grade in two weeks - but everyone was really focussed and pleased with the outcome," says Rob.
