Metronomy - The Bay

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Music Videos / Music Videos / 2012

David Wilson turned the English Riviera into a tropical paradise for Metronomy’s hit ‘The Bay’ with the help of some swimsuit-clad ladies and tongue-in-cheek imagery. Clever 80s-inspired editing is combined with humorous choreography and glamorous characters to accompany the band’s signature electro-pop sound. It’s a glorious tribute to summertime complete with palm trees, white suits and sparkling turquoise pools, and makes Torquay look more like Miami than a seaside town in Devon.
