Foals 'What Went Down' by Niall O'Brian
To describe Niall O'Brian's video for Foals' What Went Down as intense is something of an understatement.
It stages two high-octane scenes - the first sees a girl swimming ahead of two others, the second features a grim bare-chested man, and a fearsome dog - in which the tension is ratched up, slowly but surely, and pretty much unbearable - and offers up a hell of a final twist.
And on top of that, it also features a performance by the band - and in particular by frontman Yannis Phillipakis - which can only be described as frenzied. Quite remarkable - and captured for posterity on beautiful 16mm film by DoP Lukasz Zal. Fasten your seatbelts...
