Jimmy Brown - 19th Dec 2014

Gorgeously lit, Sheffield rockers While She Sleeps perform in a large empty space in Tom Welsh's high energy promo to partner their new single Four Walls.

Tom captures the band in full flight, masking the energy and drama of the soundtrack with slo-mo shots of the band throwing their instruments around  - in moody black and white, save for the last dramatic shot of a burning flag in colour. Excellent. 

TOM WELSH

"I’ve worked with While She Sleeps for almost 5 years now; after countless projects both big & small, we’ve built a bond that allows us both infinite mutual trust in each others’ creative domains.

"After 2 years out of the spotlight this was to be the centrepiece of their return. The key aspect for me was to present them in the most visually grandeous way possible; they’re most passionate in their live performance and it was crucial for me that the same passion they have on the stage translated into this piece. Instead of littering the arrangement with a disconnected story, we chose individual performance B-Reel shots to further compliment the group performance.

"It’s key the most memorable take-away for the viewer is the lasting image of a matured, improved & evolved While She Sleeps".
