Sashinski directs a lovely-looking video for Ola Svensson - aka Brother Leo - played out on a deserted beach in which the supporting cast represent the thoughts and characters featured in his reflections in Hallelujah.

After more colourful and art directed excursions in his previous videos, the pared-back black and white look by DoP Daniel Morgan, and the focus upon personality and performance, as he strides purposefully along gleaming sands, feels like a breakthrough for Ola/Leo.  


"Ola writes all of his own songs, and likes to be closely involved in shaping the concept. This one in particular has biographical significance, so we wanted to make a video that was both personal to him but one that could also be interpreted in different ways by the audience. 

"We shot in Southend-On-Sea not long before lockdown, with all of the post-production executed over zoom with some very long nights with editor Blaine Pearson and colourist George Neave. The video is about finding light in moments of darkness, therefore the landscape for Ola’s journey needed to be desolate and depicted with a certain rawness."
