A mesmerising promo by Rei Nadal at Prettybird for Georgia Twinn's track Moth. 

Intercutting night vision setups with a handful of dynamic vignettes, the focus is purely on performance, and Twinn is in her element.  

"It's about needing space.” Twinn explains. “You know when someone you’re dating is that bit too clingy? That’s pretty much my inspiration for the track. I was in a relationship and needed some space but wasn’t getting it and so Moth was born. It has a lot of attitude and I just wanna shout the lyrics as loud as I can.”

Visualising this yearning for space, we see the artist hanging from the ceiling and leaning right in close to the camera, adopting a series of unique perspectives to create a sense of suffocating unease. 

“It was really fun to collaborate with Georgia as she was into the music videos I grew up with, so we had a common visual language between us," explains Rei Nadal.

"And it was also a pleasure to work with [Twinn's creative director] Courtney MC, whose attention to detail really elevated the aesthetics on screen.”
