Elliot Arndt brings out the emotion of Laurel's angst-pop in his video for Wild Side.

Whether sitting on a bed surrounded by cameras and screens, facing a pack of papparazzi, or performing in front of projected fire and sky, Laurel confronts the darker side of media exposure through a powerful performance, captured on 16mm by Isaac Eastgate.  

It also marks the return of Deadbeat Films to the representation by Marisa Garner at MGA.

"We are thrilled to be back represented by MGA," say Deadbeat. "After a streak of hit videos with Marisa for the like of Shakka, Ghetts and Alesha Dixon, Deadbeat then ventured into the world of commercials. Having successfully spread our wings, we are now back with a BANG alongside a roster of talented directors.

"We’re kicking it off with Laurel - Wild Side directed by our long term collaborator Elliott Arndt. Hot from her freshly released EP Limbo Cherry, this is an ambitious and absolutely delicious performance video, shot on dreamy 16mm by Isaac Eastgate, outfits to die for, and a very special colour grade by our old friend Joseph Bicknell of Company 3."
