Following the success of his latest album Wallflower, Jordan Rakei is looking forward to a busy 2018 including an appearance at SXSW music festival in Austin later this month.
Watch the powerful video for new single Eye To Eye, conceived and directed by Tom Ewbank, featuring Jordan Rakei as the despairing protagonist.
“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!” explains Tom. “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.” continues Tom. “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”.
Jordan Rakei joins fellow Ninja Tune artist Bonobo as main support at Alexandra Palace in May, and shares the bill at Field Day with Erykah Badu, Madlib and Jeff Mills & Tony Allen.
