Brighton band Fear of Men take us on a deeply spiritual walk through the garden in this video for Sane.

Created by Lucy Jones and Rosie Carr, the video intercuts between industrial shots of metalworks and singer Jess Weiss wandering through a sculptural garden in a daze, creating a feeling of a ceremonial and ritualistic procession. This feeling is bolstered by the gorgeous DIY feeling of the costume design, as though we're privy to the makings of a new religion.

ROSIE CARR AND LUCY JONES:

"In Jess’s lyrics, we felt a sense of conflict between dependence and detachment to someone, or something. We wanted to explore the notion of ‘separating’ through a physical process, like the transitional conflict between states of liquid and solid metal.

"We wanted to create a numinous world that explores this push and pull between flesh and stone. The garden in the video belongs to sculptor Judy Wiseman. It’s a magical place, hidden away in North London suburbia, full of secret walkways, casts of female body parts, and ritualistic circles of bones.

"The garden is soon to be dismantled, so we hope that this video also serves as a lasting imprint of its enigma and charm."
