THE STREETS - The Escapist (video)


How can you not like Mike Skinner? Check out this simple D.I.Y. video by Uk's only new Shakespeare. This is such a great and simple story, just like his music. "The escapist" is one of his "powerballads" (like "dry your eyes", he has one on each album...) with strings and everything you need...
This is what Mr. Skinner himself said about the video: During a great period of intense mixing we decided that it might be nice to shoot a video. This isn't the way the record industry works and so it was under the radar of the label and done totally for us by us on a shoe string. It was totally different from any other promo that I've made in that it was something real that we just filmed rather than trying to create something real looking using lots of people and lots of angles. I feel like it's more than a video in that sense. Aswell as looking quite odd without all the singing and quick cuts.
