Cat Velez - 17th Feb 2016

Kenny McCracken has followed up his previous two videos for Norwegian singer Aurora's Murder Song and Half The World Away with this lovely video for the song Conqueror.

Its a mysterious and dreamlike vision set in sandy ruins, and sees our heroine held prisoner with shackles at her ankles. Then when she manages to break free, she comes across a large glowing box, tearing into it to find a boy stuck at his desk, oblivious to her. And although she seems lost in this world of dust and symbolism, the impowering images show her perseverance, giving an impassioned performance in her characteristically expressive way.
