Rob Ulitski - 18th Jan 2021

Mat Whitecross returns to music videos with this gently quirky promo for Smith & Burrows.

The duo, made up of Andy Burrows, formerly of Razorlight, and Editors' Tom Smith, are each shown walking through Parliament Hill on Hampstead Heath, being observed on their way by otherworldly puppets, watching from hidden vantage points. 

Building to a great crescendo, the pair happen across a huge group of these creatures, who have gathered to hear the duo perform in the middle of the forest. 

It's a true feat, and the puppets - care of the famous Little Angel Theatre in Islington, North London - are wonderfully designed; a combination of fairy tale beasts and acid-trip hallucinations.
