CITIZEN PHOTOGRAPHY PROJECT:
With this project we are not only created a powerful and fresh sound and discover fascinating stories for people who live in big cities, but we worked in the images that could tell these stories… so as a promotion for our new single we will share real stories about 12 Londoners. Happiness, anger, sorrow, empowerment and more to tell…
We worked with the photographer Sop Rodchenvko to create the art for our new single, Citizen. His work is deeply focused in consciousness, memory, identity and togetherness. He is a storyteller and with Citizen we’ll tell you stories about Londoners.
