Raffertie - "Build Me Up"
Vincent Haycock’s monochrome beauty for London composer/producer Raffertie AKA Bejamin Stefanski is the stirring ‘Build Me Up”. Shot in the South Central district of Los Angeles, Vince has documented the lives of the three Mays brothers, with their family and friends as co-stars, with outstanding cinematography by Evan Prosofsky.
Vince told Nowness magazine, "One of the aspects I liked most was the idea of turning the breaks in the song’s structure into natural pauses for the voice-overs, a musical element was still required here though so I composed some extra music derived from the choral backing vocals."
Raffertie’s mused, heartfelt singing adds a personal depth and emotional punch that brings real weight to Vince’s masterpiece video. The heaviness and delicacy of the song against the black and white background is a combination that makes "Build Me Up" strikingly original.
