Rob Ulitski - 29th Nov 2019

Oscar Sansom releases the first video from his collaboration with Creeper for theatrical nightmare Born Cold.

Blending elements of theatre and performance with cinematic vignettes, the visual is an introduction to a new era for the group, and to a darker set of characters and themes. Thematically borrowing elements from dystopian fiction, glam rock and iconic videos in the genre, it's a visual feast that promises to expand and deliver even wilder imagery in the chapters that follow. 

Oscar Sansom:

"With this video I wanted to create a real sense of spectacle and work in a way that I guess kind of pays homage to some of the rock videos I grew up watching; building big, dramatic sets and getting the band to delivering a blistering performance within them. The sets weren’t just about visual impact though, the band have a very conceptual and theatrical nature and enjoy telling stories within their work. When they first contacted me about working with them they explained the concept of the album and it immediately triggered some visual ideas that I found interesting. For this first video from the new album I start to touch on the album’s narrative in a subtle way that will develop more throughout the next chapters."
