Zhu heads on down to Area 51 for Came For The Low, directed by Jack Murgatroyd & Zhu himself. 

Cast your mind back to September 20th 2019. It was a scorcher in the UK, but aside from the better than usual weather, everything was pretty much same old. The same can't be said on the other side of the Atlantic. 

On that date, an event was set up to "Storm Area 51" to see what was lurking in the secret (but not so secret) military base in Nevada. With hundreds of thousands promising to attend, the actual turnout on the day was pretty minimal. For this music video, Jack Murgatroyd & Zhu headed out with the idea to put their own creative interpretation on what they knew would be the absurdity of internet culture at its finest.

Intercutting live action performance and narrative setups with vintage stock footage, the montage forms an exciting and frenetic concept. Action-packed and cinematic, it's an exceptional project, and we wouldn't be surprised to see the directors join forces for another video in the near future. Perhaps somewhere a little safer than a military testing site next time though...
