Tendai 'Not Around' by Hector Dockrill

Rob Ulitski - 27th Aug 2021

Hector Dockrill directs an imposing promo for Tendai's Not Around. 

The video opens on a city rooftop at night, as the skyline unravels behind the artist, and a palpable sense of danger lingers in the air. 

Cutting inside an apartment block, we see Tendai perform the track in a series of gritty vignettes, all shot in high contrast black and white. 

The final third of the visual - that was filmed on location in Kiev - is an impressive feat. As the artist steps out onto a balcony, the camera backs away to hang suspended in mid-air above him. Then it pans back across to the skyline, revealing a post-apocalyptic scene which signals the end of humanity.
