“I never thought I’d make cliff top, roof down, drive into the sunset type music but, ‘Deep Down’ does feel like that to me,” Orlando says. “A sort of stompy freedom. A very concise, 2 minutes of freedom. I think it’s the best representative of the world myself and Bullion were trying to build on the album. Lean but full of buoyancy. In the absence of a convertible and cliff top I wanted the video to have that slight fanciful, otherworldliness and be unapologetically head-noddy. The otherworldliness comes courtesy of Daniel W Fletcher’s bespoke double headed costume, made especially for the video. And the unapologetic head nodding is thanks to Lolly Adefope with Rik Burnell directing and pulling it all together.“
