Promo News - 7th May 2013

With some cool and psychedelic on-body projections, John Bland follows his promo for Charlotte Church’s Glitterbombed with this slow-burning promo, matching the intense and dark nature of her next single Nerve.

“Nerve is about the intense state of mind that you find yourself in after having an apocalyptic row with someone you love” explains Charlotte. “The sort of row that seems like it could be terminal; the confusion of knowing that you deeply care about and never want to be without – the person who you’ve just had a massive fight with, and the resulting emotional dissonance”.

“The video is John Bland’s visual exploration of these emotions, and the results are saddening, terrifying and beautiful.”
