In addition, after two well attended shows at Reading and Leeds Festivals this year, Ghostpoet preformed his new single, 'Cold Win' for BBC 3 at Reading 2013. Watch it HERE.
The video for 'Cold Win', which was partly shot in Iceland, brings a nomadic feel to the song, utilizing images of wide open roads and endless landscapes. Directed by Cyrille de Vignemont, Ghostpoet is featured as a character unwilling to hit the road and to leave his life behind. Raindrops come together to form hobo symbols, a series of characters used by the rootless vagabonds who appeared in the USA at the beginning of the 20th century to communicate below the radar of civilized society. Guided by a sensorial narrative, an atmospheric mood gradually develops in the middle of those infinite landscapes, beautifully complimenting the song. Watch + share the video HERE.
