Stranger Than Fiction

by Syd Briscoe

Moses Boyd: “Stranger Than Fiction” - 3 mins 48s

This white-hot promo for South London-based musician Moses Boyd's latest track offers a dreamlike insight into the creative process. The film itself becomes an instrument as it develops its own rhythm alongside the music, with Boyd and company glowing against a dark background like spirits possessed by song.

Jean-Philippe Blunt and Thom Humphreys aka in/out's cryptic imagery and use of strobing lights creates a sinister vibe - the sense that something could be lurking beyond the infared camera's watchful eye. It's intriguing work, demonstrating just how atmospheric and compelling a simple concept can be when executed with the appropriate verve.
