Jimmy Brown - 3rd Mar 2015

Intercut with a cool, atmospheric band performance shot in black and white, Matthew Connell offers up a night-of-passion-in-reverse scenario for the promo to Young Romance's Wasting Time. We'll leave it to Matthew to explain...


"In this video we just wanted to create a quick and simple story of a couples regret of getting caught up romantically in the heat of the moment. We didn't want to create a fleshy, racy showpiece. So instead we had the concept where we could capture that similar sexual intimacy but in reverse... a sort of "wish we never got started" scenario.

"So you see the couple start unclothed and innocent in bed, and with that curiosity flaring up in the heat of things, they end up putting on each others clothing with more intent and frisky nature, and with the climaxing moments intertwining with the energy of the bands performance" we're left with a kind of bizarre form of sex in a inverted concept a rather normal practice for many couples".
