Cat Velez - 19th May 2017

Aitor Throup and Sing J Lee have co-directed a wacky, masterfully executed live video for Kasabian's Are You Looking For Action?, harnessing the energy of live performance in a clip that was shot in Bethnal Green Working Men's Club in one continuous take on May 9th, and streamed live as it was shot on Facebook.

Having worked together previously on a global ad campaign, this is the first time Throup and Lee have co-directed a music video. Throup’s conceptual approach to portraiture and Lee’s specialism in crafting surreal narrative themes, allowed them to capture the video's lucid dream aesthetic.

The eight-minute-long sequence mainly follows guitarist/vocalist Sergio Pizzorno and vocalist Tom Meighan as they move around what can only be describes as a Halloween themed club night. All sorts of great and bizarre occurrences unfold, including a king and queen's card game dispute and saxophone solo interlude...
