slowthai 'Rainbows' by THE REST - now signed to Pulse Films
Directing duo THE REST have signed to Pulse Films for global representation, the announcement being timed to coincide with the release of their video for London rapper slowthai, who rises from his own place of rest, to confront authority and undergo a startling transformation.
THE REST is comprised of life-long friends Alex Motlhabane and Lewis Levi, who began making short films together while at university in Northampton, in order to document British youth culture and comment on current social issues.
This developed into a working relationship with Kojey Radical, producing some distinctive music videos, and then building a spirited visual identity with the much buzzed-about slowthai. And that leads us to this latest collaboration for Rainbows.
The song tackles race and addresses the way ideologies in society encourage negative perceptions of people of colour. THE RESTS' visuals follow suit, but through a super-trippy, colourful lens. More from THE REST here
