Jimmy Brown - 12th Feb 2014

US/British singer-songwriter Kenzie May teams up with director Francis Wallis for the promo to the alt-RnB of Skeleton Key.

Francis contrasts a night-time trip to the launderette with sensual imagery and performance footage, sketching out the themes of anger, sorrow and confusion within the lyric. 


"The track deals with some pretty sexual themes, the challenge being to get this feeling across without going too literal with it all.

"It was a pretty fun shoot, but then again I wasn’t the one sitting in the pool all day”.
