Bloc Party



The Mill graded the music video for Talons a single released by the Bloc Party. Directed by Mini Vegas through Agile Films, the promo was shot on RED camera and fully mastered by The Mill using a totally digital pipeline. Aubrey Woodiwiss, who set the grade said, ‘I pushed the dark tones to electric blue to complete the atmospheric feel.’

Bloc Party announced their new single Talons, released through Wichita Recordings on 20th October 2008. Produced by Paul Epworth, it didn't feature on the band's then current album, which was given a surprise digital release on their website with a free download.

Talons became the number one most-watched promo in the UK, making the Bloc Party channel the most viewed music channel. Bloc Party was up for four awards in the 2008 Digital Music Awards, and became one of the week's Hot New Ones on the MTV2 Charts.
