[VIDEO PREMIERE] Graham Panther: Promises

Watch the video premiere for Graham Panther (of Panther and the Zoo and Ruby Suns) - Promises - directed by Nikki Castle, who shares her thoughts about the video here:

"I became a little obsessed with faceless portraits recently, inspired by New Zealand artist Henrietta Harris. When I heard Promises, the connection struck a chord. Graham's lyrics lament popularity politicking while catastrophic climate change statistics go unnoticed and ignored. We are all a bit faceless when it comes to changing what we've created."

Graham Panther: "I love the scale of this video, it's epic and at the same time a collection of oddly intimate moments. There's something urgent and unsettling about it, but it still makes me laugh, especially the bit where I was forced into a Tony Abbott mask."
