David Knight - 9th May 2017

Hugh Rochfort's new video for Crows - his second for the band – builds atmosphere and tension right from the start as one man walks through London's less salubrious quarters: the industrial estates, the markets, the tower blocks.

At the core is a protagonist separated from the world, arguably oppressed by the unforgiving environment he walks through. But there's also a gritty beauty in the depiction of the city's tough heartlands, captured in DoP Richard Simkins' photography. That quality never falters in this impressive and stylish work.
