Molly Gale and Jancarlo Beck - aka directing duo Sleepy Puppies - have created a riveting dramatic vignette for Aquilo, shot at Joshua Tree, California, and achieved in a single take. 

Playing out like the crucial point of a bigger narrative, this picks up in the aftermath of a terrible event, and the clash of two young men who have to deal with the consequences of what has recently happened. The tension of the scenario and raw emotion of the protagonists is a complete counterpoint to the dreamy Who Are You, but it works.

Even more impressively, Gale and Beck have mustered almost scarily good performances from bandmembers Ben Fletcher and Tom Higham, who are playing dramatic roles (and in fact appearing in their own video) for the first time. They clearly draw on their genuine relationship, and then they take it somewhere else entirely.
