Cat Velez - 10th Aug 2016

Gareth Phillips has directed this new video for London band Is Tropical's new track Believe, which sees singer Kirstie Fleck battling against her inner struggles.

Represented through the singer's contorted movement in a solitary candle-filled room, and a sequence underwater where she struggles for air, the video successfully expresses the sombre tone of the song.
