Tiana Blake: “Interruption” - 3 mins 14s

Retro R&B rules the day in this sumptuous promo for Tiana Blake's 'Interruption'. Director Sheena Brobbey helms the Nineties-inspired effort - a low-fi fever dream of satin, sparkles, and soft-focus shots. Nods to Britney Spears's infamous 1999 Rolling Stone cover as the artist lounges on a pink bed only cement the film's vintage vibe.

Canny details throughout the promo enhance the late Nineties glamour further, from animal print and elbow-length gloves to a bank of vintage VHS televisions and even the singer's chunky, holographic nails. Crucially, the revelation that this spangly love story is about two women is incidental rather than a dramatic reveal - just as it should be.
