Having previously gone to the Far East to tell stories for Rudimental, Josh Cole has stayed close to home to create this hybrid of short film and music video, which takes the emotional narrative of Louis M^tters' War With Heaven as its inspiration. 

Set in London, it revolves around three men who are representative of three states of mind – one happy, one dangerously angry, one suicidal. They are destined to come together for a single life-changing encounter, when fate plays its part.

It's not just a linear narrative, and the story gets into the reasons why things happen, and the main characters motivations, with a sympathetic eye. But the pace and tension never slackens for a second. Very impressive stuff from Josh Cole, who's reputation as a young director with a talent for cinematic storytelling, and marrying music with intense drama, continues to grow.
