David Knight - 21st June 2015

The song may be called London, Benjamin Clementine's native city, but this is a lovely cinematic video by Colin Solal Cardo which places the singer-songwriter in a situation that's wonderfully suited to his creative persona - on the rooftops of Paris.

Solal Cardo uses important elements of Clementine's biography and artistic progress – which involved him busking on the streets of Paris before being discovered – to create this romanticised vision of the artist, reeling lyrics from an old typewriter, playing an invisible piano, and flinging messages from his own Parisian rooftop tower.
