Luke Bather - 9th Feb 2017

Fionn Regan's first single in six years comes complete with a Cillian Murphy-starring, eerie night drive directed by Yousef Eldin.

Using diegetic sound to immerse the audience into the car, this creepy midnight drive in the woods is a woozy, sleepy and ultimately quite tense clip. Expertly letting imaginations run wild, the horror and the tension here build and build because of what Yousef chooses to show us, or more accurately chooses not to show us.

Sound design is key to pulling off this ambitious narrative - in which not that much actually happens (which in a music video is a bold-as-hell move in itself). But the scope of what could happen really runs away with you.
