Emile Rafael directs a pure, very atmospheric performance video of Catfish and The Bottlemen’s Homesick – shot at The Backstage Centre in Purfleet.

Says Emile: “The track is a powerhouse of explosive energy, both simple, immediate and raw. The guys have built a reputation for their strong performances on stage: all we needed to do was capture that.”

He was very ably aided and abetted by DoP Charlie Herranz, with the grade by Dave Ludlam at Framestore.
