View

The youth team are coming up through the ranks at The Assembly Rooms! Our junior editor, Edward Cooper, has just cut a great promo for Nimmo's new track 'Unyoung' with director Michael Holyk at Academy Films.

With it's trippy macro visuals and improvised set ups, the video explores twenty-something anxiety. In Michael's words "visualising the heaviness and irrationality of constantly being at war with one’s thoughts".

We think Edward is a real talent and definitely one to keep an eye on in 2016.

Rosie Lowe 'Woman'

David's new promo for Rosie Lowe...

View

David's new promo for Rosie Lowe's single 'Woman' is a striking and conceptual take on gender stereotype and body image.

Lowe has noted on social media that the working with Academy Films director Nadia Marquard Otzen was a collaborate process that allowed her to 'challenge female expectation exploring themes of disengagement from a true self' whilst also 'playing with ideas of disguise, a dressed self verses an undressed self'.

Lowe's debut album 'Control' is due for release on February 19th.
