WORK: Neil Krug captures stunning drone footage for Bonobo’s Break Apart video

Photographer and director Neil Krug‘s video for Bonobo track Break Apart features some stunning overhead shots of the Californian desert captured using drones.

The single is the second from Bonobo‘s sixth album, Migration, out next month on Ninja Tune. The previous video for track Kerala featured actress Gemma Arterton.

Krug, who has worked with Lana Del Rey and Boards of Canada, used drones to shoot places that inspired Bonobo (Simon Green) while writing the album. Mysterious lights and dark plumes of smoke create an otherwordly feel.

Green says the locations featured in the video are all close to where he now lives in Los Angeles. “Part of the writing process was to drive up to those places and live with the tracks as I was making them. This was a new part of the world to me, where the landscape is quite alien and Martian.”
