“I Believed In You” is the first single from the new album “Black Traffic” of Skunk Anansie, the famous English band of “front-WOman” Skin. The return of the band after the last album Wonderlustre (2010), seems to be promising: in the video Skin has got hair (and this is very rare) and she’s gently asking us,
“Will you do me the favor?
Go slit your throat skinny.”
Ok, Skunk Anansie are back, and they are ready to send everyone to hell.
But this time they’ll do this in cyber clothes.
The director’s video Thomas Hicks has designed a futuristic cityscape where the band sings and plays following the beat of the fluorescent lights and video animations on the background. All the musicians are wearing a tight black suit that reacts to the negative effect and revealing fluorescent graffiti on their bodies. All the clip is in black and white, and the negative effect highlights the white color that becomes dazzling and fluorescent, and seems to draw the skeleton of the band in the air.
Thomas Hicks works as a Music Video Director, Illustrator, Animator and creates projections for theatre productions, he also specialised in animation, working with drawn animation processes, 3D software and live action. Now he is busy working on music videos: Newton faulkner – Write it on your skin, Dead Man’s Waltz – Emmeline, Dry Riser – Tangerine.
The collaboration with Skunk Anansie is his latest work.
