Swimming Tapes 'Tides' by Babysweet

Swimming Tapes 'Tides' by Babysweet

Gregg Houston aka Babysweet keeps things simple and dreamy in this kaleidoscopic performance clip for Swimming Tapes.

Armed with nothing more than a kaleidoscope filter and ninety minutes, Babysweet manages to create a performance video with a throwback to television of the 50s and 60s, complete with authentic-looking titles and a grainy, washed-out aesthetic.

From the director

BABYSWEET:

"Shot in 90 minutes during a band rehearsal the music's dreamy guitars, nostalgic lyrics and reverb-tinged vocals dictated the retro vibe of the performance.

"The aim was to keep a sense of mystery about the band but make it engaging. I got a kaleidoscope filter and took it from there. The split imagery suited the music and also let us see everything in a slightly obscured way if that makes sense.

"On this version, we added a title at the intro. Four of the band members are from Northern Ireland so I asked Annelise to create a similar looking logo to the one I found from their local television station in the 50's. She did a great job."
