London can be a hard place.
A sprawling, modern metropolis, its frenetic pace can leave you feeling jaded, remote. Yet the city also has a romantic streak, an ability to inspire like few other places in the world.
Love is the subject of Submotion Orchestra's new video. Shot in London, the clip uses dramatic monochrome to sketch out the familiar features of the city.
Expressing their emotions through dance, it's a tense, engrossing clip which mirrors the fluid, continually in flux nature of the band's music. 'Hard To Stay' is soulful without being retro, experimental without losing sight of that human touch.
Watch it now.
