Declan McKenna 'Nothing Works' by Finn Keenan

Rob Ulitski - 12th Oct 2023

Declan McKenna sleepwalks his way to rockstar status, in Finn Keenan's promo for Nothing Works. 

Opening in an upscale nightclub, we see McKenna encouraging full-blown dance sequences and melting the hearts of everyone in the venue.

This is quickly revealed to just be a dream, and the artist sleepwalks down to the local pub to put on a much more modest, unconscious show. 

But with some VFX flair and gravity-defying tricks, is there more to the concept than meets the eye? 

Showcasing Declan McKenna's cheeky charisma with an ambitious sense of fun, it is a fine introduction to the artist's new album.
