Thomas Knights' video for Pandora Drive's Unoriginal Sin is the opening part of an ambitious short film/music video project accompanying the band's concept album that explores the allure of the underworld, and the darkness of addiction. 

Each video is a chapter in the story of Alice – played by actress and model Pip Phillips – a girl desperate to escape her ‘perfect’ life for something just a bit more dangerous. In this stylish first episode she acquires her first taste of the city's strange, thrilling underbelly - and begins to slip into the vortex...


"Unoriginal Sin is our first music video for Pandora Drive - the start of a series of connected short films following the story of Alice - a girl desperate to escape her perfect life for something more dangerous. It's a story personal to me, exploring themes of escapism and addiction in 21st century city life."
