Luke Ainger directs a striking black and white promo for rising post-punk outfit Deadletter. 

Shot in the historic Brunel museum in London - which has remained empty for months on end due to multiple national lockdowns - the video reflects on the perilous state of art and the spaces in which it inhabits.

Lensed by Rik Burnell and shot on 16mm film, the high contrast, lo-fi aesthetic is a brilliant match to the lyrical content. The performance itself is excitable yet tense, touching upon the political themes of the track and the current zeitgeist with flair and attitude.
