The Big Moon 'Wide Eyes' by Louis Bhose

Rob Ulitski - 15th July 2022

A simple greeting turns into a full-on choreographed dance, in Louis Bhose's splendid promo for The Big Moon. 

Celebrating the comeback of the alternative indie group, we follow vocalist Juliette Jackson as she wakes up in the middle of a field, eventually regrouping with her fellow band members and running through an increasingly complex routine.

It's a refreshingly simple yet punchy concept which feels fresh and timeless, whilst carrying a certain emotional weight to it, as the girls celebrate the start of their next chapter together.

The use of a black studio environment to represent a fantasy version of the real world heightens the stylish aesthetic, whilst the real emotion drawn out of each member acts as an anchor to the whole project. 

"I've always been interested in bands returning from the wilderness - updating their Insta after eighteen months away with shadowy images and emojis," says Louis Bhose. "I thought it would be fun to have a band bump into each other, having not seen one another for ages, and start with this little handshake that then gets increasingly elaborate and emotional.

"That extends from a little fist bump into a big choreographed piece..."
