David Knight - 14th Nov 2016

Issues of mental health and overcoming obstacles are addressed within the intense arena of a teenagers' wrestling tournament in Manchester directing duo Grandmas highly watchable video for Lake Komo.

The band subtly incorporate their performance of the song Weight Of Fear And Doubt from the sidelines, but its the progress of the teen hero, played by Joe Kinsella, taking physical and psychological punishment in an unforgiving environment, which grabs the attention.
