Leif Vollebekk 'Blood Brother' by Joe Connor
Joe Connor does a classic London thing with a twist in his charming video for Leif Vollebekk.
The Canadian singer-songwriter is taking an early morning trip on a nearly deserted open-topped double decker bus around London landmarks in the video for Blood Brother. Intriguingly, he happens to be handcuffed to his seat.
So there are a few questions that pop up immediately, but they quickly fade when it's evident Vollebekk is accepting of his situation. And he certainly attracts an admirer, as the only other passenger becomes his enthusiastic ally, breaking into an endearingly supportive dance routine.
Feeling both vintage and contemporary at once, the universal aspects of the concept translate perfectly to screen, and bring the upbeat ballad to life in a colourful and quirky way.
"I wanted to place Leif into an alien world; handcuffed to an open top double decker bus as it glides through a romantic early morning London.
"The idea for this video came from wanting to find a simple cinematic concept that would allow Leif the space to perform the track. I'm in love with the colours, the atmosphere, the vibe."
