Rob Ulitski - 25th Sept 2019

Kasabian guitarist Sergio Pizzorno is back again with side project The S.L.P, and a video for the euphoric ((trance)). 

The self-directed clip is a minimalist performance video, depicting Pizzorno walking down pitch black streets, wearing a pair of ski goggles and some kind of grappling hook wrapped around his body. Intercut with a haunting, frenetic performance, his eyes deep black and glazed over, the whole project is a trip and an intriguing look into the avant-garde mind of The S.L.P. The ghosting effects on this setup also suggest an otherworldly presence, and this is further hinted at by the shadowy figures that follow him incessantly throughout. 

In such a stripped-back concept, strong performances are key, and Pizzorno is wonderfully erratic and dazed in his role. The end shot is visually stunning, with Pizzorno standing on a black pebble beach, until the camera pulls out and reveals he is encased in some kind of nuclear reactor or megastructure. He might need that grappling hook after all.
