Drenge, "The Woods" (Max McCabe)

Mitad vídeo musical, mitad documental televisivo, "The Woods" trata de describir la realidad geográfica del grupo británico Drenge. Un entorno que ha curtido su música como así describe la propia banda:

"The cement factory in Hope is visible from miles around. As you take the 272 [bus] round Surprise View, above Hathersage, you can see the chimney and behind that, the remains of Peveril Castle. It was just behind our school's playing fields and its own train line ran past our old house, shaking the walls every couple of hours.

The Woods is a song about a walk I made with my dad, it's about religion and what happens to our bodies after we die. It's also about being introduced to music whilst driving around the moors late at night. Inspired by many evenings spent in hotel rooms watching endless episodes of How It's Made... The video for The Woods is our own interpretation of the cement making process shot on 16mm."
