Bailey Tom Bailey brings together the strangely dissonant, eerie tones of experimental singer Bastien Keb with an engrossing supernatural tale of young love, youthful high-jinx and a mysterious madness that takes over its protagonists.

Bailey creates a distinctively dislocated mood in his portrayal of inner city adolescence, where a teenage couple are torn apart when they come under the dark influence of the city, signified by a black liquid that flows into the streets.

"The idea came from inner city Reading where I grew up," says Bailey. "It seemed like everyone I knew or saw growing up would succumb to something that brought them down and turned them bad. I pictured this sickness coming up from the pavement and infecting our bodies, which would then affect our minds and instigate action."
