Remember We Were Lovers

by Syd Briscoe

Bobby Gillespie and Jehnny Beth: “Remember We Were Lovers” - 3 mins 37s

Inspired by classic Japanese cinema, this monochrome promo for Bobby Gillespie and Jehnny Beth's 'Remember We Were Lovers' delivers a striking watch. Primal Scream vocalist Gillespie cuts a stark figure against a bare beach landscape, while Savages frontwoman Beth lurks inside a barren woodland - eventually becoming one with the earth itself.

The moody film makes intriguing use of photographic overlay and silhouette, causing the two lonely wanderers to feel almost spectral in their separate yet spiritually-joined journeys. Overcoat appreciators will doubtless enjoy the piece's sartorial side too, as sharp tailoring seems essential to communing with the land here.
