UK Promos

The first thing you notice while watching Zhang + Knight's promo for French singer S˘nge is the palette. A myriad shades of blues and lilacs - so exquisitely put together it's spellbinding - leave you wondering whether it was simply a happy accident or whether the directors have a far more developed colour perception than the rest of us mere mortals.

It turns out that it is more likely to have been inspired by the fact that S˘nge has colour-sound synaesthesia (lucky thing). Combining the ethereality of FKA Twigs with the late-night wooze of Portishead circa 'Dummy', her music itself was sparked by her ability to see sound as colour.

Zhang + Knight's clip with its crepuscular gloom feels as if we're being given an insight into this crossover world, and has captured something very special indeed.
