Biffy Clyro 'A Hunger In Your Haunt/Unknown Male 01' by Oscar Sansom
Director Oscar Sansom delivers another striking visual work for Biffy Clyro, this time in the form of a ten-minute long concept encapsulating two tracks.
The first segment of the video is a paint-drenched performance concept, featuring the group in an industrial warehouse, playing whilst kicking, throwing and splattering blue paint everywhere.
The second part of the video takes a more abstract, surreal turn, narratively exploring a cult-like group in the forest, with glitchy vignettes of people running away, circling the group and the appearance of enigmatic black squares floating in the atmosphere.
A regular collaborator with the band, Oscar has created a truly striking work here which features some incredible visual moments, intriguing storytelling, and explosive (and at times extremely messy) band performance.
We wanted to explore what a music video could be...
“I had a lot of fun with the storytelling in this project. It’s rare to get the opportunity to make a 10 minute film within the world of music videos.
"We wanted to explore what a music video could be, and what possibilities we might find by changing the traditional format. What if we were working with two songs within the film instead of one?
"Choosing two quite contrasting songs meant that we created an interesting juxtaposition in the film that really excited me and I wanted to reflect this in my visual reaction. It starts off as one thing and then takes a sharp left turn into something totally different and unexpected.
"We really wanted to take the audience on a journey and ask them to take a leap of faith with us into the unknown.”
