John Joseph Brill has just revealed this captivating new video featuring a plasticine version of himself, for his latest single ‘Kings’ .
Speaking on the release of the new video, Brill said: "Kings is a song about the loss of innocence and the realisation that you as an individual are mortal and alone. With the video we wanted to speak to the horror of that, my plasticine head ageing and growing more grotesque as life takes its toll like some sort of claymation Dorian Gray seemed an appropriate representation of that horror. At the same time the plasticine creates an artificial almost playful suspension of disbelief much as our brains do in regard to death and the passage of time.”
‘Kings’ and ‘False Names’ EP are both out now via Killing Moon.
Forthcoming live dates: Virgin People festival – 9th July
Standon Calling - 30th July
Wilderness festival – 6th August
