David Knight - 7th July 2015

Following her and Fraser Watson's video for Nightmare, London-based director/photographer Erin Barry has directed her second video for Detroit-based garage rock band Mexican Knives, another exercise in lo-fi experimentation for The Beach Song. 

Shot on Hampstead Heath, it features a blonde with some issues, and camerawork by Watson on the Go-Pro and Black Magic pocket camera, operating both underwater in the murky Heath ponds, and at ground level.

"The inspiration behind the video was a modern take on a B-horror swamp thing with a dark female edge- all handcrafted in London," says Erin. You can listen to the new Mexican Knives album here.
