Fat White Family 'When I Leave' by Fiona Godivier
Fat White Family take us down into the depths of Merrie old England - it's Heart of Darkness, if you like - in this absorbing video for When I Leave, directed by Fiona Godivier.
Elements of pagan ritual, proto-fascism and old school dressing-up takes place in a Sussex forest in another symbol-laced piece to add to the impressive canon of visuals that has come with the latest FWF album Serf's Up.
A caustic critique of an imagined England, from Britain's most interesting band right now.
"Fiona Godivier's new video for Fat White Family is an homage to The Wicker Man and all things pagan. Having developed the narrative closely with the band over the past few months it was important to reflect the aesthetic and sentiments behind their brilliant new LP Serf's Up.
"Shot over two days in the most haunted forest in the UK and pagan hotspot 'The Long Man of Wilmington', the film follows Lias as he carries his 'burden' in pilgrimage to the ritualistic burning of far-right extremist Oswald Spengler, joining his gruesome pagan followers in procession.
"Huge thanks to all the amazing cast and crew who worked incredibly hard to who worked incredibly hard to make this story come to life!"
