Jordan Rakei Shares the Video for ‘Eye to Eye’

Tom Ewbank, the director of Jordan Rakei‘s ‘Eye to Eye’, had this to say about the clip in a press release.

“We shot the music video on the Welsh coast in the middle of December, which came with a few challenges, not least the temperature of the sea and the weather!” Ewbank explained. “This was the first bit of acting that Jordan had done and I was initially concerned that we may struggle to transform one of the nicest and most considerate people I know into a psychopath. I’m not sure what Jordan’s performance says about him as a person but his portrayal is very convincing and at times terrifying. I’ve always enjoyed working with Jordan and I feel very fortunate to have worked with him on this project, hopefully his fans enjoy the video as much as we enjoyed making it.”

The track is taken from Rakei’s second album Wallflower, out now on Ninja Tune. He also shared a free stream of a remix of the track under his Dan Kye moniker;

The album finished at number two in the “Album of the Year” vote at Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Awards and it was also shortlisted for The Australian Music Prize, the Australian answer to the UK’s Mercury Prize.
