Sons Of Raphael 'Revolution' by WIZ
Legendary music video director WIZ returns with a characteristically dramatic and enigmatic 'musicfilm' for alt-rock duo Sons Of Raphael.
The band, comprised of brothers Loral and Ronnel Raphael, deliver a new take on old school psych-rock with their track Revolution, and WIZ puts the pair squarely at the centre of near-operatic psychological mini-melodrama.
It begins with a battered and bruised Loral crawling painfully up steps, Ronnel comes to his aid, they make their way through a brutalist urban landscape. WIZ creates a dreamlike, almost absurdist drama from the economical use of the pair in an intriguing location, which appears to exist somewhere between reality and pure theatre.
As with his other recent work like his video for Mika's San Remo, DoP Catherine Derry is an excellent interlocutor of WIZ's vision, the cinematography is both intimate and epic.

Producer Rosie Brear makes a notable directing debut for Irish singer-songwriter Orla Gartland, dramatizing the artist's party-fatigue from the perspective of her reflection in the mirror.
