David Knight - 31st Aug 2015

There's love and there's some blood on the dancefloor in Dawn Shadforth's marvellous video for Hurts' Lights - a nightclub odyssey where chemistry explodes utterly believeably between two strangers – the man, played by Theo Hutchcraft (definitely out of his usual ice-cool persona mode), and the feisty girl. And that's just for starters. 

It's a wonderful mix of gritty British drama and fantasy – Hutchcraft is a revelation, great bullfighter styling by Alex Noble, and edit by Dom Leung - and its thrillingly photographed by Robbie Ryan.
