Georgia Hudson takes us on an energetic choreographed journey through the streets of London at nighttime for Nimmo's latest, Dancing Makes Us Brave.

Shot by ​Marc Gomez Del Moral with Richard James Lewis on steadicam, the video was shot over a temperate summer's night in East London, showcasing a group of dancers' relentless drive, energy and fluidity of movement to the fore. The resulting video is a celebration of the cathartic power of dancing, expounding its ability to embolden and uplift us through its passionate choreographed sequences.

GEORGIA HUDSON:

"Making this video was an absolute mad pleasure, right from the get go. Before this track was born, I had written a short film called 'Club Relief' about the seeking of self on a night out and when I heard this song and met the Nimmo girls I couldn't keep it back, it felt like the right image for them and the right song for me. Nimmo were so open to including the Club Relief title within the video, which kind of goes to illustrate how respectful of creative collaboration they are - it is a beautiful treat to feel like you are working with an artist rather than for them. 

"Laura Clayton commissioned this and she was able to have brought together people who feel the same things in our stomachs, I couldn't be happier with the process or the end result really - We had a stella crew including choreography by the skin-shaking Holly Blakey, styling by Hannah Hopkins who always manages to sneak in something sensual - latex/fur/frills and everyone on our substantially female based team pulled no punches for this, it was a huge effort motivated by the spirit of something special, in large part that had to be the Nimmo girls, their enthusiasm and open hearts was an infectious drive in the process and my producers Katie Lambert and Ailsa Vanessa Tapping who enabled our wildest demands to come true, the power of good energy provides more than the budget sometimes."
