‘To Live And Die In Grantham’

26/03/2015

Directed by Chris Hewitt, ‘To Live And Let Die In Grantham’ has been visualised as a “rave ritual” shot at the Bel Air Chalet Estate in Seawick, Essex. The track appears on ‘Flame Rave’ also released this week.

Watch the film via VEVO or YouTube.

‘Flame Rave’ is out now and follows the 2014 album ‘Clark’.

‘To Live And Die In Grantham’

“The track is a banger. It reminds me of my old rave days. Its also the perfect piece of music to convey different energy states through imagery and action. The fierce first half is all about energy and aggression whereas the latter half is about euphoria and transcendence.

It got me thinking about the archaic, almost tribal nature of a nightclub and how best to tie this into the track. Even though I believe we’re about to see a resurgence in archaic revival, I think as people we’ve kind of lost a lot of the traditions in what make us human. The rights of passage is a big one for me. 

The Natives would send out their teenage tribe members into the wilderness. They’d have to fend for themselves over days, alone, without shelter and food, constantly being stalked by the animal kingdom. This ritual would instil patience, self reliance and a centre mind, qualities that would develop you as human being in all the positive ways.

The film for Clark is a modern take on that ritual, maybe a twisted take on it.”
