Circa Waves 'Young Chasers' by Davis Silis
Here's someone you wouldn't want to meet in a dark alley. Davis Silis's excellent video for Circa Waves' Young Chasers is all about a girl with a temper you could only describe as volcanic.
This features a great performance by Chelsea Edge as the girl with a mile-wide mean streak (including strangling a small dog) and a visual effect where Davis throws gritty reality into a graphic illustration of her state of mind - inspired by the work of Beth Hoeckel and Joe Webb. And it all comes together when she arrives at the party where the band are playing... Marvellous.
"Youth is explosive. As in, your personality bursts out in every direction with a velocity that only occurs when you’re growing up, and it can take you to some surprising places.
"The idea behind ‘Young Chasers’ was to tap into that sensation in a patently visual way; a young girl becomes increasingly vicious not for any sociological reasons, but just because she can.
"As Circa Waves sonically thunder out, so does this formidable girl. While we see what she does and may ask: ‘why?’ She asks, like every teenager before: ‘why not?’
"It’s exciting and terrifying at the same time. Also, volcanoes are just really, really badass."
