Drones Club ‘Hurricane’ by Daniel Brereton
Dirty’s director Daniel Brereton weathers the storm at the top of Beckton Alps to direct ‘Hurricane’, the latest single from Drones Club.
Drones club are a politically charged band, inspired by the likes of KLF, Devo and Adam Curtis. They look for liberation from everyday day norms, and amidst the chaos of 21 st century life, Drones Club found freedom: ‘Hurricane’ is about "the liberation that comes when the world feels like it's falling apart around you.
“The band had created their own visual language, through photos and their outfits in their stage show, and so the idea for the video was to make a world for these creations to live in. We wanted to shoot on multi-format, so each camera had a specific role; it was partly to do with being watched and being monitored, and partly to do with documenting their own myth. The choreography was an instinctive representation of the music by Daisy Cauty, and then the location was somewhere that had a weird history to it, in a far out borough of the capital city.”
Daniel has recently directed videos for Las Aves, Gorgon City, Julio Bashmore, Max Jury, Soulwax and a fashion film for Stella McCartney, having previously overseen projects for the likes of Metronomy, Django Django and Connan Mockasin.
