Sam Fender 'Saturday' by James Slater
The promise of respite cannot come soon enough in James Slater's video for Sam Fender - starring Matt King, who played Super Hans in Peep Show.
Hanging in the shadows of a low-key Fender gig at a social club, King is the washed up artist who has been unceremoniously cancelled in place of the young new talent. Overcome by the emotion of the band's music, he dives into intoxicating choreography that starts on the dancefloor but spills out well into the streets of London.
Fender also pops up as various characters as King frolics around town, including a chip shop owner and busker, giving Saturday a rather more light-hearted and humourous vibe in comparison to his previous videography.
Blending the naturalistic and sincere elements Fender brings to the table with Slater's passion for the avant garde, DP Alexandre Jamin builds a hazy and colourful world for Fender and King to inhabit. It’s quirky and contemporary yet realistic enough to represent the madness a Saturday night in the city can bring.
