Rob Ulitski - 9th Apr 2021

Two rival motorbike gangs have a high stakes dance-off, in Joao Retorta's spectacular new promo for Royal Blood. 

Featuring cinematic action scenes and sharp choreography, the video for Limbo steams ahead at breakneck pace, whilst Jake Hunter's mesmerising cinematography captures the wonderful surrealism of Kiev and the industrial locations. 

It's an action-packed yet enigmatic video which feels like a trademark Retorta work, encompassing high-energy, high concept ideas with true flair and craftsmanship.
