Starting under the promenade lights of Brighton and ending in a dead end high on the Sussex Downs, Edward Bishop’s film for Between Two Fires - the new single from Ben Watt’s upcoming album, Fever Dream - is intercut with a late-night solo vocal performance. Directed, filmed and edited by Edward Bishop. Words and music by Ben Watt. Additional cinematography by Al Compton. A High Tide Film.
Ben Watt, formerly half of Everything But The Girl, is getting to release a singer-songwriterly new solo album called Fever Dream. It features contributions from people like Marissa Nadler, Suede’s Bernard Butler, and Hiss Golden Messenger’s M.C. Taylor. We’ve already posted the compelling narrative video for first single “Gradually,” and now Watt has made a clip for the strummy, propulsive, José Gonzalez-esque new song “Between Two Fires.” Edward Bishop directs, and the clip intercuts black-and-white footage of Watt performing with black-and-white footage of London at night, as seen through a car’s windshield. -- Stereogum
