Luke Bather - 9th June 2017

Daniel Brereton takes Bastille's Dan Smith on a lawless American road trip in the video for 'Glory'.

Partially a glorious piece of road-movie Americana and partially a study in the shaping of memories - Brereton's video sees a couple (Bastille's Dan Smith and actress May Daniels) lie on the hood of a car and reminisce about their trip. The tales they tell materialise as flashbacks with details changing as the pair misremember their antics. Beautifully shot by Adam Kimmel (whose feature work includes Capote and Never Let Me Go) the film cuts between perspectives to tell a beautifully fragmented tale.
