Brendan Cleaves takes us on an atmospheric and surreal roadtrip with East London psych-rock outfit Saint Agnes for their slowburning rumble The Witching Hour.
Friction feat. Josh Barry 'Freak' by Brendan Cleaves
Brendan Cleaves explores the facial manifestations of life's ups-and-downs in his video for Friction's track Freak, featuring Josh Barry. It features slow-motion portraits of ordinary people and their extraordinary expressions, which, as always, makes for an absorbing watch.
"I wanted to the video to break the mould a bit in terms of what people are expecting. The song is very powerful so I wanted the video to be intense, thrilling and emotional, in its purest form - a bit of a rollercoaster, mixing up heightened emotions, from one side of the spectrum to the other.
"I also wanted to give the video a very photographic look and feel, really making these characters pop off the screen and connect with viewers. There is something about a simple headshot that is captivating, when you look closely, the slightest change in someones facial expression can alter the mood quite dramatically."
