Nadia Otzen goes deliciously old-school for exciting new artist Rob Bravery, heading for the woods with Rob, some kids, some shapes and some homemade masks.

And perhaps most importantly, a 16mm Bolex camera. Nadia shot this herself, and achieves her aim of making gorgeous timeless footage to create a sense of nostalgia to reflect the reminiscent nature of the song.


"Rob Bravery is a phenomenally exciting new artist in the UK, so I'm very thrilled to be there at the very start of his career. For this video we put the little money we had into buying some 16mm stock, borrowed an old Bolex, and then set out to create visuals that had a sense of something forgotten and nostalgic about them, almost as if we had found this footage in an old loft room or something and strung a video together of it.

"The song is about Rob remembering his teenage years growing up in suburbia, sniffing lighter fluids, and the subsequent altered reality that followed. So it was about creating a state of mind, tapping into bits of the unconscious."
