Kate Tempest documents division and disorder in the video for ‘Tunnel Vision’

Her album ‘Let Them Eat Chaos’ is up for the Mercury Prize 2017.

With her latest album ‘Let Them Eat Chaos’ up for tomorrow night’s Mercury Prize alongside the likes of The Big Moon, Glass Animals, Stomzy, Sampha and more, Kate Tempest has revealed a video for her new single ‘Tunnel Vision’.

Directed by Akinola Davies Jr, the clip perfectly captures the overall message of the track, summing up the divided nature of modern society and focusing on the chaos an strife that brings. Shot in stark black and white, it’s an almost symbolically colourless video that’s powerful and political in equal measure.

Speaking about the collaboration, Anikola said: “it’s an honour to collaborate with an artist like Kate and be entrusted to make visuals that we both think best reflect and fit with the body of work she has created. She is an exceptional artist and the positivity of her team has been inspiring”.

Last year we talked to Kate about ‘Let Them Eat Chaos’ for a DIY feature. Catch up here.
