Rob Ulitski - 17th Sept 2020

Oscar Hudson is back, directing a fever dream wrapped in a music video for Slowthai. 

The concept for Feel Away opens rather innocently... Slowthai - real name Tyron Frampton - is with his girlfriend (played by Guindilla Ontanaya) at a maternity ward, shot through her first person perspective.

Reality soon takes a distorted plunge into more surreal territory, as the perspective switches and it's Frampton who now has a baby growing inside of him. Cascading into multiple nightmare scenarios, his love interest falls in love with a doctor, his limbs turn into cake and the baby lipsyncs the lyrics via the ultrasound screen. 

Truly weird and wonderful, the video takes a sharp turn into the uncanny valley and doesn't let up until the final, haunting frame. The use of first person perspective drops the viewer right into the middle of this world, creating an erratic and claustrophobic environment with no way out.
