Kasabian 'Darkest Lullaby' by Bedroom

Promonews - 25th June 2024

Directing duo Bedroom’s first video at their new production company home brings them together with classic rockers Kasabian and is an ode to the gritty, audacious trailers of 1970’s exploitation, grindhouse, and B movies.

For the video for Darkest Lullaby, Kasabian - led by frontman Sergio Pizzorno - star as characters in their own wild movie, bursting with frenetic and iconic visuals. There's a search for a mysterious woman, bloody showdowns, rough-ups - and a detective on his final, desperate case. The chaos unfolds through bombastic, iconic moments inspired by your favourite throwback trailers.

As the video progresses, things get meta, as Bedroom expand the field of vision to include the B-movie's domineering director. The story climaxes, as the walls come down, in a fun and vibrant moment shattering the lines between reality and cinema.

“Imagine stumbling across the abandoned film reels of a long forgotten movie that never reached completion, featuring a jaded private detective's descent into the depths of a dangerous assignment swimming with bloodthirsty mob goons, pyschoactive torture and all the inglorious hazards of the Grindhouse/B-movie legacy," is how Bedroom describe the Darkest Lullaby video. 

"This was the concept behind the music video we had the pleasure of writing and directing. One that couldn't be possible without the enthusiasm of the band whose threw themselves effortlessly into their roles - all acting and no sync, alongside the well-dressed, star-studded ensemble of cast and an impeccable crew. Captured of course on celluloid.”
