Favourite Colour Black Directs Hypnotic New Music Video For Birdy

Park Village, 7 months, 3 weeks ago

Able&Baker's Director steers viewers through the British artist’s surreal dream

Favourite Colour Black Directs Hypnotic New Music Video For Birdy

In Favourite Colour Black's new video for Birdy, 'Keeping Your Head Up', viewers glide hypnotised through layers of the artist's dream, falling deeper down the rabbit hole in a photographic and bold take on surrealism. 

A stream of fantastic vignettes sees light and dark physically manifest as masked dancers while Birdy - Alice to this Wonderland - floats through, curiously observing the opposing forces.

With FCB's blend of high-fashion styling, in-camera trickery and an ethereal performance by Birdy, viewers are immersed in the director's beguiling world once again.
