Jimmy Brown - 17th Nov 2014

For Hero Fisher's glam-stomping, distorted thrasher Punk, Ciaran Lyons captures an intense band performance shot lo-fi style with added colour-bleached city scenes, all (intentionally) roughly edited together to enhance to the leftfield throb of the soundtrack...


"The aim was for the video to show two very distinct depictions of Hero and the band. It was about acknowledging that they are simultaneously performers, and just a bunch of friends who play music together.

"So one section of the video is very stylised and theatrical, and the other section is as natural and raw as possible. Once we started pushing this concept a bit further, we ended up experimenting with different filming equipment and techniques. It was a really playful process"
