Following their win at the Kerrang! Big Audition, last week Electric Flix filmed the new music video for Aberdeen band Akord (pictured at the prize ceremony), whose debut album Carry The Sound came out in April.

Using two Red cameras and a state-of-the-art Steadicam, director Tom Lawes and his team (including director of photography Ed Moore) filmed the actual performance part of the video on the stage upstairs in screen two at The Electric Cinema, and then used a number of Birmingham locations for the storyline aspect of the video.
