Cat Velez - 15th May 2015

After getting together for the So Lost promo earlier this year, Ady Suleiman has teamed up yet again with Michael Holyk to deliver this amusing comment on modern society, with Suleiman smoothly rolling through the streets of London, expressing his thoughts on religion, faith and politics in the video for State Of Mind.

On his journey, Suleiman's thoughts are brought to life by a diverse supporting cast, a religious figure (possibly Jesus) with a megaphone, Adam and Eve, nuns, and prospective MPs. When nighttime comes, the tone goes darker, and the singer demands to know, 'Where were you when the soldiers went to war, because it's you they're fighting for.' But even the solemn subjects are uplifted by Suleiman's confident, charismatic performance.
