Instead of a video for one track from American jazz saxophonist Kamasi Washington's new album Heaven And Earth, director Jenn Nkiru and creative director Bradford Young are behind an innovative campaign of one minute 'teaser' videos for four different songs.

The first two in the series are Fists Of Fury and Space Travelers Lullaby, featuring enigmatic scenarios that draw you into Washington's glorious music.

In Fists Of Fury, a trio of dancers in 1930s Ethiopian miliary garb execute a jaunty running dance around a red star; in Space Travelers Lullaby, a mysterious ceremony takes place in a forest, where a red-garbed priest bestows a blessing upon a young woman. And both certainly makes you want to see and hear more.
