Rob Ulitski - 21st June 2021

Oscar Sansom captures a Royal Blood performance for a US talk show, with the excellent staging of Trouble's Coming for The Late Late Show with James Corden.

Boasting bold production design and a pronounced orange and blue colour palette, the curved lighting rigs and staging compliment the dynamic cinematography. The saturated aesthetic has an almost 80s neon feel, which matches the band's effortlessly cool performance. 

"I really wanted to show how incredible Royal Blood are live," states Sansom. "This was the first live performance the guys have done since the release of the new album (Typhoons) and so we wanted to make something really exciting visually, but it was also really important to me that we didn't distract the focus from the band's performance."
