As of Late | Spiritualized
It’s been a wild ride around here lately. The latest success dropped this week with Spiritualized’s newest music video – celebrating his return with an album, Sweet Heart Sweet Light, after a three year hiatus.
We spent two weeks in Atlanta prepping and shooting this little monster, and my, oh my, I couldn’t be more proud of how it turned out. The song itself is an epic, a reminiscent sound of something iconically British like the Kinks but innovative and forceful with its own twist and voice. AG rose to the occasion to write and direct a film complimentary of a piece so intrepid and fearless.
James Ross (also known as Tyra Sanchez) completely took our breath away – it seems he’s had a similar effect on thousands now.
The story narrates the life of a single-mother, transvestite sex worker, and isn’t at all afraid to show the nitty-gritty. While the film is aggressive, violent, and graphic – it is also exquisitely humanizing, beautiful, and triumphant. Through the juxtaposition AG creates you witness true endurance of human spirit.
