David Knight - 18th May 2016

Jake Bugg puts himself on the line in his latest collaboration with Michael Holyk. But that seems wholly appropriate for Love Hope & Misery, a song which displays the singer-songwriter's gift for melody with a greater core of emotion that he's previously shown. A future live anthem for sure.

This is a pure performance video with a strong stylistic debt to the pre-music video era promos of the 1960s, and its beautifully shot by Adam Scarth, on 16mm.
