Happy (God's Own Country)

by Syd Briscoe

Sports Team: “Happy (God's Own Country)” - 2 mins 48s

London indie rockers Sports Team take to the countryside in this vintage-inspired promo for 'Happy (God's Own Country)'. Directed by Georgina Cammalleri, the film takes its cues from Seventies folk horror classic 'The Wicker Man', and features singer Alex Rice and co. partaking in all the Morris dancing and bonfires they can handle.

A genre-savvy nod to more recent cult favourite 'The Witch' in the form of ergot-infested crops bolsters the promo's surreal atmosphere, as the band guise their way around a town with a straw-clad offering in tow. Hallucinatory and gleefully odd, this will draw in horror aficionados and those who watch between their fingers in equal measure.
