David Knight - 16th Oct 2015

Franklyn Banks's first music video since joining Gas&Electric is a brooding, evocative film for Billie Marten's track Bird, shot over one long day in the spectacular surroundings of the Lake District.

The video alternates between day and night shots of the same scene, illustrating the feeling of stasis expressed in the lyrics, ''caught as a bird once free.''
