Promo News - 6th June 2018

Brendan Cleaves takes us on an atmospheric and surreal roadtrip with East London psych-rock outfit Saint Agnes for their slowburning rumble The Witching Hour.

It's evocative of numerous classic films where dodgy back projection just adds to the spectacle, with band members - and other mysterious passengers - sometimes there, sometimes not... 


"We wanted to create a video based totally around the band and the idea of a bad 70’s rear projection road trip movie. We also wanted to keep thing simple and milk the idea that the song was actually almost seven minutes long, dragging things out a little. We threw continuity out the window and make it purposely jarring in the edit and flow.

"The band's image was also very important to me. It had to seamlessly integrate with the band's visual persona and feel of their other social presence."
