Cat Velez - 11th Apr 2016

A violent lovers' quarrel is depicted in a suprisingly funny and entertaining way in Ryan Patrick's new video for Russian synthpop band Tesla Boy's song Nothing.  

The star of the show is a capricious, childlike young woman (played by the charismatic Jade-Lorna Sullivan) on house arrest, being visited at her stately home by two psychologists looking to understand the events leading up to her crime.

And once she is given a life-size doll to help explain what happened - her home becomes her stage onto which she creates a dramatic re-enactment of the whole scene, with plenty of interpretive dance and simulated sex thrown in. Marvellous.
