Luke Bather - 22nd Nov 2016

Following on from Thomas James's MVA-winning video for Ready For The Magic, featuring a gang of feral young girls, his next collaboration with Scottish pop-punk duo Honeyblood features another deceptively deadly female. It's the Season of the Witch.  

Emerging from the sea's murky depths in the guise of a beautiful woman - the Sea Witch of myth and lore claims her first victim on the beach before making her way to a house party, where Honeyblood just so happen to be the entertainment. It's a low-key masquerade ball in a house awash with blue and purple light, where the sea witch's true hideous appearance begins to be revealed to the viewer.

Of course, as any good fable-cum-horror story, the Sea Witch ensnares a victim to lure back to the beach, and then to the ocean floor... Darkly comic, weird and fun.
