Premiere: The Flight - Dark Corners

Featuring Keaton Henson...

Apart, Joe Henson and Alexis Smith have written for some of the biggest names in pop.

Yet the East London duo still aren't satisfied. Working together under The Flight banner, new EP 'The Hangman' is a macabre, beat-laden beast. Deeply conceptual, it tells the story of a young woman tempted away from home into a the forest where she is killed and buried in a shallow grave.

Telling the story in full, the EP is written from the viewpoint of the murderer, from first meeting the young woman to rueful ghost after his execution.

Which is where Keaton Henson comes in. Co-writing 'Dark Corners' his soft voice is the perfect vehicle for the tale - subtle, and unexpectedly menacing it's a wonderful vocal turn.

'Dark Corners' has been given the visual treatment by Kevin Weir. The clip picks up on these supernatural themes to produce a video which is brimming with menace.
