Jan Blomqvist x Bloom Twins 'High On Beat' by Francis Wallis
Francis Wallis teams up with long term collaborators The Bloom Twins, in his ethereal, fashion-inspired visual for High On Beat.
The enigmatic promo is a dark, sultry vision, complete with futuristic styling and hypnotic performances.
The slick, avant-garde concept exists in a world of neon striplights and mirrored surfaces, halfway between an alien spaceship and clandestine science lab - and we follow the duo into this world of magic and mystique with no questions asked.
I wanted to bring something more ethereal and trippy to our visuals.
"Anna and Sonia (aka The Bloom Twins) are always unflinching in bringing their unique style and energy to screen. This video always felt like it should be performance-led, but I also knew I wanted to caveat this with a free reign to bring something more ethereal and trippy to our visuals.
"We actually shot this video a year ago during lockdown 1.0, so this was also a little bit of a rude awakening about the realities of what shooting under Covid restrictions truly meant. We pulled this video off with a skeleton crew with a capital S, but in some ways that’s exactly what was needed for a shoot like this.”
