Director Michael Holyk has gone deep into slow-mo concept-driven cinematic loveliness in this study of the ugliness and beauty we experience during a heady night out, for Whilk & Misky's Burn With Me.

Shot in a classic black and white to match the Delta-bluesy sound of the track, the video is comprised of a series of vignettes, including super-close up shots, that flow into each other with ease, creating a sensuous nighttime atmosphere.
