This new video, released via Majestic Casual, is not to be missed. Speaking about ‘Late Night City Hawks’’ Jason says: “The Late Night City Hawks EP is a product of commuting in and out of London and is a collection of scattered thoughts about the city, the politics and the environment”.
“Right from when Jason first sent us Late Night City Hawks we knew it would be super interesting to put visuals to. It’s a very thought-provoking track, conjuring up feelings of nostalgia and love – but also underlying themes of loneliness and frustration.
We wanted to capture this tapestry through a story about a boy and a girl existing in the engulfing isolation of a towering, maze-like utopian nightmare. With the slow death of culture in modern cities, they are fast becoming the loneliest places on earth, and we wanted our characters to search in such a space, desperate for intimacy and connection.
Although they do meet and share an intense moment together, we wanted this moment to be fleeting, to be over before it had begun – it was important to us that they are dragged back, doomed to return to their isolation within the city.” – Do Not Entry (Oli Carr & Frank Higson) – Directors.
