SBTRKT – “Trials Of The Past” | Music Video


Although released in 2011, we’re not mad at SBTRKT for still releasing new visuals to accompany their self titled album, this time with the official video for “Trials Of The Past.” The gory clip is not for the faint-hearted, as inspiration seems to be taken from Sweeney Todd as we enter the barbershop of horrors for the down-hearted yet intriguing new video.

Directed by Ross Anderson, the video doesn’t feature SBTRKT, aka visually elusive London based producer Aaron Jerome, nor the singer on the track, Sampha. Instead, we see a young girl running in the rain before taking refuge in a virtually empty hairdressers, as one man waits for his next customer. As the girl takes the hot seat preparing for her hair cut, the man grabs a circular saw for the job and… well, we’ll let you watch the rest.
