Grandbrothers
'From A Distance'

The inquisitive invention of Grandbrothers knows no ends.

The pair's new album 'Open' is out now, with the group set to play a special show at London's Rich Mix on November 21st.

As if that wasn't enough, though, the duo have also worked on a new short film, a collaboration with Dan Medhurst.

The video picks up on their work 'From A Distance', as Grandbrothers explain: "The film is a loose adaptation of the ancient Greek myth of Sisyphus who struggled to push a large rock up a mountain only for it to roll back down and for him to start again each day."

"It tells a tail of eternal struggle for our lead character (played by Mark Wingett) who appears to be locked in a convoluted journey for victory, but ultimately ends up back where he started. It also plays with the concept of eternal recurrence; That the universe and all existence has already occurred and will continue to reoccur infinitely."

"I chose to shoot in the Brecon Beacons at night to emphasise a feeling of total isolation. We used a high powered custom built LED attached to a drone to light our character and shot on 50 year old, Russian anamorphic lenses to create haunting, unusual visuals which play with the idea of distance and anonymity."

A beautifully pieced together clip, the wonderful scenery and tightly-knit narrative perfectly compliment the duo's music.
