KLVDR, who has been making such an impact with his videos for the likes of Stormzy, J Hus, Wiley and Giggs in the past year or so, has now signed to Pulse Films, kicking off this new relationship with a delightful video for the fantastic Mahalia, and her co-star Kojey Radical.

Mahalia recounts the story of the night before - about a guy who has let her down by leaving in the night. But her relaxed but strong demeanour with her friends says everything about the fact that she remains in control. It's the guy who has messed up - which is expressed through Kojey's flawed but still likeable character. KLVDR's direction allows the story of the song to breathe, and the personality of the artists to shine through.

“It's an exciting time for me, moving to Pulse Films. I’ve been a fan of their work for many years, to work with a team like this is an honour.” says KLVDR, who was born in Zimbabwe, and now based in London. “One Night Only is a step in a new direction for me. It explores the different perspective of how women are judged by one night stands; I wanted this to feel amplified but not taboo nor demoralising.”

Rik Green, Head of Music Videos adds: “KLVDR is an exceptional talent and someone we have long admired. His passion, craft and creative output makes him a perfect fit for our studio’s roster. We’re pleased to welcome him to the team and thrilled to have kicked off our partnership with such a brilliant music video for Mahalia’s One Night Only – one of many projects we have lined up which we’re excited to share with the world.”

KLVDR will continue to be represented by Marisa Garner Associates, and you can watch more of his work here
