Director Samantha Morton brings us The Kills' beautiful new promo for single, 'The Last Goodbye', starring the band's duo of Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince, and commissioned by Fiona Ghobrial at Domino Records.
Shot inside a photo booth, this single celebrates the 10th anniversary of The Kills, and nostalgia is a theme that runs throughout. Nostalgia for old photo booths and the times spent in them; nostalgia for their stylised black and white prints; nostalgia in the lyrics of an ending relationship… and all wrapped up in Alison's Mosshart alluringly voice and haunting piano music.
The video was directed by actress-director Samantha Morton and produced by Juliette Larthe through PRETTYBIRDUK, and 'moving images' seems like a good way to describe her vision - both literally and in the emotional sense.
The project was shot on black & white 35mm by Florian Hoffmeister.
