David Knight - 20th June 2016

Tim Mattia returns to the world of rock, and to wrestle with the controlled frenzy of Biffy Clyro, in this stylish performance video for Animal Style.

It starts with a measure of calm as each of Biffy's three members occupy their own sheet of white backdrop in a photographic studio set-up. But then things proceed to get a lot messier.

It looks brilliant throughout, in Mattia's trademark black and white, courtesy of Pat Meller's photography; while Vid Price, that supreme editor of rock videos, applies an appropriately full throttle cut. It's fast and furious, and the fans wouldn't want it any other way.
