Broken Antenna and Hak Baker have reunited, following the UKMVA-nominated Like It Or Lump It, for the first single of his upcoming project, and it's a belter.
Jam Baxter ft. Rag'n'Bone Man & OG Rootz 'Mask' by Broken Antenna
Jam Baxter, Rag'n'Bone Man and OG Rootz go for a meal at a local restaurant where the maitre 'd - played by Perry Benson - promises them extraordinary delicacies. And, in a way, he's right...
Gustav and Myles of Broken Antenna dish up an appetising comic-horror for Mask, where unspeakably monstrous plates of obscure seafood - that's mostly still breathing - has a grim effect on the pallor and constitutions of the three rappers.
The imaginative display of dishes - always just too disgusting to consider that it's real food - has been created with a very impressive combination of work by art director Jen Gardiner, 'food styling' by Huw Caddy and Matthew Harris, puppetry and modelmaking by Emily Morus-Jones, prosthetics by Cesar Alonso, and post work at Cranrust VFX. Very tasty.
"The video is a surrealist meal scene inspired by 80s cinema, using mostly practical effects on a built set with veteran British actor Perry Benson, the film is a horror with a tongue-in-cheek approach like the films of that period.
"We wanted to create a PG horror aesthetic, which would gross out the audience whilst still maintaining the intended humour.”
