Jimmy Brown - 2nd July 2014

Mathy and Fran take the staccato soundtrack of Best Thing and interpret the lyric with a variety of signals including semaphore, smoke, hand movements and dance in their promo for London trio We Were Evergreen. 


"Taking a choreographed approach for Best Thing, we took inspiration from the cryptic and coded feel of the lyrics to create a visual where signals replace words. We liked the idea of elements such as semaphore, morse code and smoke signals coming together to form a completely non-verbal language".
