Cat Velez - 10th Dec 2015

Dylan Pharazyn has directed this short and impactful video for Kiwi noiseniks Die! Die! Die!'s Dark Arrow in Kiev, Ukraine, which sees a young girl walking through an abandoned industrial park, confronted by her alter-ego - a 'performing' version of herself.


"I was sent images of this abandoned building while scouting for another project. Immediately struck by the massive scale and dangerous concrete forms of this place I knew I had to shoot something there. So when the band sent the new track through I developed the concept and narrative around the location."
