Tom Bolton's absorbing video for indie-electro band Winters Island’s debut single, Ares, captures the nostalgia of lost youth, and the freedom a group of friends find at a backyard wrestling reunion.

Containing real footage of the DIY wrestlers grappling when they were teenagers, the promo expresses the joy of a misfit subculture, who dust off their masks to reunite for one last backyard hurrah.

Power slams, headlocks, lucha masks and bandanas... it's ultimately a celebration of the balls-to-the-wall punk-rock attitude of die-hard wrestling fans.
