High Contrast
"Questions (ft. Boy Matthews)"
3 mins 15s

UK Promos

They say you should always put your smartphone to one side at bedtime. Give the brain a chance to switch off. Well, someone forgot to tell this young man. This hyperactive promo for High Contrast’s ‘Questions’ shows what happens when desire refuses to rest.

Starting with his dream woman, the film dives deeper and deeper into the protagonist’s subconscious. Alas, he isn’t even a player in the dreamworld, and soon we’re introduced to a hunky love rival.

From there it’s all squeezed hearts, human pinball machines, and a buffet groaning with innuendo... there’s enough phallic imagery here to give Sigmund Freud palpitations.

In the end, the aptly-named Polyhedra offers too much uncertainty - one swipe to the left, and it’s on to Tracey. Something tells us this guy doesn’t get much sleep. His despair is our gain, however, and Riff Raff’s Casey + Ewen deliver a witty commentary on the neuroses which surround modern dating.

What do you do when your audience violently accosts you while you perform? You make like Marina Abramovic and carry on regardless. The promo for High Contrast's 'Shotgun Mouthwash' by Favourite Colour: Black takes the artist as its inspiration and shows the band playing on even as singer Lincoln Barrett is spat on, stabbed, and finally strangled.
