Even casual visitors to our site will have observed that we’re big champions of Jordan Rakei’s music, with his imaginative latest album Wallflower earning a well-deserved top 5 ranking in our Best of 2017 list. One of the supreme standouts of the highlight-rich song suite is “Eye To Eye,” for which Rakei has just unveiled a powerful and unsettling headtrip of a new video directed by Tom Ewbank.
"We shot the music video on the Welsh coast in the middle of December, which came with a few challenges, not least the temperature of the sea and the weather!” Ewbank explains in an official statement. “This was the first bit of acting that Jordan had done and I was initially concerned that we may struggle to transform one of the nicest and most considerate people I know into a psychopath. I'm not sure what Jordan's performance says about him as a person but his portrayal is very convincing and at times terrifying. I've always enjoyed working with Jordan and I feel very fortunate to have worked with him on this project, hopefully his fans enjoy the video as much as we enjoyed making it."
If you haven’t indulged in the brilliance of Wallflower yet, let “Eye To Eye” serve as your overdue introduction to this wonderful album.
