Rob Ulitski - 28th May 2020

Jonny Knowles directs an appropriately heartfelt visual for Ben Dalby's ode to the pandemic crisis, The Stars (Hope In Lockdown). 

Shot in black and white, the video intercuts a performance section of Dalby singing whilst sprawled across the ground, and docu-style shots of the world as it is today. Shops are locked up, locals are queueing outside, and the world at large is on pause. 

Simple, lo-fi and entirely authentic, the song and the video are one man's perspective of lockdown and the pandemic visualised through a universal lens.
