David Knight - 27th May 2014

A young girl with an ability she doesn't quite understand is implored to save the life of a dying man. But messing with the spirits eventually comes at a grave cost in the atmospheric video for Button Eyes' A Fever directed by Richard Paris Wilson.

The story is set within a travelling gypsy carnival - it's influenced by the HBO series Carnivale - with a diverse cast of characters (including the mandatory bearded lady), and Richard indulges his penchant for demonic children, magical worlds and mysterious dances.
