Also from Somesuch & Co is Daniel Wolfe‘s latest, for Stay The Same by The Shoes. The narrative-led promo stars This Is England ’86’s Johnny Harris and follows other impressive films by Wolfe for Plan B and Chase & Status. It seems only a matter of time before he will be directing longer format pieces.

Next up is another gritty, though beautifully shot piece of narrative film for you, this time from director Oliver Goodrum, for Casually Sunshine’s latest track Consequences of the Kill.



Director Price James channels early 90s cable TV channels (complete with terrible ads) in this video for Hercules & Love Affair’s track My House.

This cinematic video, set in a US Pentecostal church, is by director Dan Sully for Chapel Club’s new song, Surfacing. Production company: Love.

Finally we end with this truly bizarre little film from directors Larry Seftel and David Day for track We’ll See To Your Breakdown by The Chap. If you’ve ever wondered what happens when you combine an overweight chap with a wind machine, then this is the film for you. And, as if that weren’t enough, his stomach has been turned into a comedy character. Nice.
