David Knight - 26th Jan 2018

James Blake's new track, featuring astonishing cut-up vocals from Blake, has inspired a brilliant visual accompaniment from his longtime collaborator Alexander Brown.

Under Brown's auspices, Blake takes to the wheel of a 1991 Corvette for a night-time drive through LA. And just as Blake experiments with his sound, Brown disrupts the realism of Blake's drive, subtly distorting and vibrating as well as speeding up the footage, and orchestrating light to match the music. The result is completely mesmerizing.

Blake and Brown go back a long way - all the way to The Wilhelm Scream, seven years ago. But this takes their creative partnership to a new place altogether.
