Nana Rogues and Ms Banks team up in Darnell Depradine's vibrant video for Issues. 

Taking place inside a nondescript flat in London, the concept is split between two main setups- Rogues' neon lit performance in the living room and Banks in the bathroom, soaking in the tub surrounded by flowers and luxury. 

DoP Francis Lane utilises burst photography to create glitchy and erratic cutaways, helping bridge the scenes and create a striking change of pace. These shots are juxtaposed with the glossy and considered cinematography in the main scenes. A heavy use of green lighting is a brave and bold choice for a video like this, but works nicely and sets it apart from other current videos in the genre. 

Simple yet incredibly ambitious in its concept, Issues is a strong visual which highlights Rogues' and Banks' performance skills, whilst bringing something fresh and exciting to the table.
