SPLIT SECOND

In the shade of a dark room a band is playing music and singing. Faces are not recognisable because of overprinted elements.
Scattered archive images give a retrofuturistic atmosphere to this arty black and white music video where opposites attract between freeze frame and movement, soft focus and close-up.
The alternative style and light-dark ambiance are enhanced by a surprising visual syncretism.

This is the official music video of the song SPLIT SECOND from the EP 'Winston's Playground' from Bye Bye Leader
