UK Promos

This bizarre promo for Royal Blood's 'How Did We Get So Dark?' is both gritty as hell and utterly bonkers. The Sacred Egg have embraced their love of the surreal and gone all out here, creating something as wonderful as it is weird.

We meet a guy who likes collecting white rabbits... with a vengeance. It's a fascinating concept which raises more questions than it answers, as the violence increases and a strange rivalry emerges from the darkness.

The visuals are beautifully crafted here, with references to classic action and horror movies which will bring film buffs back for a second watch. This promo achieves the elusive task of leaving us wanting more... we'd happily watch a feature length version of the Bunny Boondock Saints.

Pascal Teixeira shoots a minimalist promo for Royal Blood's latest track, 'I Only Lie When I Love You'. Occupying a white void, men in black Mike Kerr and Ben Thatcher need only concern themselves with the music. The monochrome aesthetic and topsy-turvy camerawork ensure our attention never wanders from the track's flirtatious treachery.

Having escaped their milky prison, Royal Blood find themselves on more familiar ground in this performance-driven promo for ‘Hook, Line, and Sinker’. Strobe lights and crunching riffs abound as the Brighton two-piece mark their homecoming in a sweatbox. What the video lacks in finesse, it compensates for in bullish intensity.

There's something of a Doctor Who vibe about this promo for Royal Blood by Riff Raff's The Sacred Egg. The band are playing the track in a nondescript room in an unremarkable house when something strange starts to happen... and young women begin splashing about like an unlikely water-borne virus.
