David Knight - 2nd July 2021

Headie One plays a bank robber with imaginative attitude to his accumulated wealth, in DAPS's visually arresting video for Pound Signs.

DAPS gets pulses racing from the start with a heist, where Headie gets heavy on the approaching cops. Then he heads to the laundrette and is literally rolling in £50 notes, before a high stakes card game reaches an electrifiying climax.

Employing a clever use of camera movement and a fluidity across the visuals, DoP Sam Meyer's cinematography elevates the ambitious concept, and a suitably gritty grade helps tie everything together.
