Kassandra Powell directs an absorbing comeback promo for Bimini, which shows that you can find glamour in the most unlikely places. The video for Rodeo opens with Bimini on a mechanical bull, shining bright as lights refract from the abundance of reflective monochromatic textures. Quickly bringing the concept back down to Earth, we realise this whole setup is in a typical British pub, and the punters are as about as apathetic to Bimini's performance as they come. But whilst most glare disapprovingly as Bimini continues to do her thing, one character breaks out of their passive state to get absorbed into the otherworldly trance of the music. The contrast of glossy pop concept and stoic public is a brilliant visual dynamic, and DoP Luke Dryden's cinematography captures the perfect balance of these two opposing styles.
