Broken Homes

by Jason Stone

Wu-Lu: “Broken Homes” - 4 mins 22s

There's a huge amount to love in this promo for Wu-Lu by photographer-turned-director Denisha Anderson. It beautifully draws energy from the track, and then amplifies it in a fashion which ensures our attention is focused on the genre-busting music created by her fellow South Londoner.

Anderson playfully uses a house party setting to create a stage for the artist, masterfully using light and smoke to underline the grunginess of the track. The outcome bounces on the screen as the beat pulsates through crowded room with such vividness that you could 'hear' it in a sensory deprivation tank provided your eyes were on the video.

While her film contains no social commentary (unless you're going to count an ambiguously-worded intro) it's nonetheless bristling with an anti-establishment energy which feels entirely in simpatico with Wu-Lu's cultural mission. Both of them are plainly artists to watch.
