The rollercoaster ride of relationships is explored in Daniel Brereton's video for Ritual.
Las Aves 'Die In Shanghai' by Daniel Brereton
Daniel Brereton takes us to the streets of Shanghai to complete a trilogy of girl gang-themed music videos for Parisian band Las Aves.
The first saw Focus Creeps' follow a team of girl skaters in Los Angeles for Leo, while the second (and Brereton's first for the band) for N.E.M., featured a sassy group of hairdressers in South London. This time, for the title track of Las Aves's debut album Die In Shanghai, Brereton focusses upon an all-female, all-in-pink troupe of street acrobats in China's most populous city.
And Shanghai provides a dazzling variety of locations, where the charming girls parade their range of exceptional skills, in the video photographed by Dylan Doyle. It's also the latest in a diverse range of work helmed by Brereton this year, including for Gorgon City, Julio Bashmore, Soulwax and Stella McCartney.
“The band were interested in featuring a gang from Shanghai, based on the songs title and lyrics, and so we did some fairly extensive research into our options over there. We came across a group of acrobats, who perform in the city regularly, doing an amazing variety of acts.
"My idea was to take their act onto the streets of Shanghai, filming them in strange and beautiful locations performing acrobatics. I loved the contrast of these small but powerful females contorting in front giant skyscrapers and down dead end alleys. It was great for me to get this opportunity to shoot in China and I am very thankful to the band."
