Rob Ulitski - 21st Jan 2021

Lewis Cater directs a warm, romantic and aesthetically-driven video for Welsh quartet Holding Absence.

Blanketed in a wide array of flowers and plants, the band perform latest track Afterlife, emanating an ethereal and intimate vibe. 

The use of still image intermixed with the footage adds an extra level of impact, freezing moments in time to help the concept unwind in an organic way.  

Beautifully shot and realised, Cater captures the essence of the group, whilst stamping his own trademark style on the project.
