Cat Velez - 12th Jan 2016

Daniel Brereton has directed this cultish vision for New York-based band Porches, which sees them lounging around in a mansion house, sometimes together - other times apart - but not entirely there at all.

Playing on the opposite meanings of the chorus 'I want to be apart/I want to be a part of it all,' the bandmates are shown isolated from each other but also united by the same lethargy, wearing matching black outfits and drinking bottled milk around a pot of fake flowers. The scene is constructed and fake rendered all the more expressive of a group which is stunted and filled with longing.
