David Knight - 2nd Nov 2018

Ian Schwartz's video for Rudimental begins on a mist-shrouded rugby field, one player ploughing through tackles before being floored by one extra powerful opposing player. It's a superbly well-crafted introduction to this story about two rivals who join together to achieve their goals, to break the mould within their community.

Shot on location in Auckland, and Schwartz focusses on these two determined characters and their budding friendship, and on gritty, cinematic shots of their city (by DoP Steve Annis), while keeping the narrative open-ended - so the viewers can draw their own conclusions.

Ultimately it perfectly suits the fist-pumping passion of Tom Walker's vocal performance of Walk Alone - the latest song released ahead of Rudimental's forthcoming album Toast To Our Differences (released on January 25th) – and it makes a riveting watch.
