Benjamin Francis Leftwich’s shared a new video for ‘Mayflies’ - taken from his forthcoming new record ‘After The Rain’. It’s out on 12th August on Dirty Hit.
Directed by Jake Jelicich, Benjamin Francis Leftwich describes the video as “referencing the final hours of a party before everything is frozen in time. It’s the snapshot of a night where everyone is caught up in the present, living their own adventures unbeknown the world is ending. The idea was to capture the feeling of exhilaration and hope for the future that we all sense in the moment, contrasted with the reality check of dawn. Mayflies fuck and they die. Everything is so wrong yet so perfect.” Cheery stuff, Ben!
Benjamin previously shared ‘Tilikum’ from the record. Watch his new video for ‘Mayflies’ below.
