Space

by Andrew MacGregor


Biffy Clyro: “Space” - 4 mins 22s

Being a proud Scot, Biffy Clyro frontman Simon Neil is used to getting soaked. This Joe Connor-directed promo for 'Space' sees Neil and dancer Jasmine Chiu caught in a decidedly localised shower, followed by an underwater sequence that no designer shirt or dress is expected to survive. It gives a whole new meaning to the term "fashion victim".

Sartorial tragedy aside, Connor draws physical, wholehearted performances from his sodden cast, which lends weight to Neil's pining lyrics ("Our joy lives in the moments we share/Love's truest meaning lives when you're not there"). DP Ruben Woodin Dechamps's fetching underwater visuals also deserve kudos.
