Luke Bather - 22nd June 2016

The world is dark, cultish and cutthroat place in Temptress' video for Lies, directed by Fred Rowson.

The black and white clip see the musical duo ritualistically slaughtered by a Wicker Man-esque Olde England cult, who just happen to be in the present day. Intercut with images of children at play, this is a sinister video executed with a wryness that only makes its presence felt on a second or third viewing.
