Luke Tierney - 4th June 2014

Industrial basement contrasts with country manor as Norwegian singer Seinabo Sey performs and parties through Casper Balslev's stylish video for Hard Time.

Excess reveals itself, at times in stark contrast to the chorus's 'hard times' motto. 'Fancy' dress and bold colour lighting play their role in this intriguing promo whilst Seinabo sings throughout, oblivious to her surroundings.
