David Knight - 7th Mar 2019

The Rest - that's Alex Motlhabane and Lewis Levi - continue their longstanding relationship with rapper Slowthai, their pal from Northampton, with this archetypally zany imagining of his track Peace Of Mind.

Motlhabane and Levi visualize Slowthai's existential angst in a number of enjoyable set-ups, deconstructing filmmaking devices in the process, and embracing daft comedy. It's typical of what they do for this intriguing grime artist, who's already an amazingly charismatic screen presence. The Rest's other videos for Slowthai - like last year's North Nights and the recent Doorman (with Mura Masa) - are also bloody good.
