Benjamin Clementine – Phantom Of Aleppoville | Music Video
Coming on the back of his victory at the 2015 Mercury Prize for his debut album, At Least For Now, Benjamin Clementine returns with another stellar track, “Phantom of Aleppoville.”
Beautifully accompanied by visuals from British photographer Craig McDean and Russian filmmaker Masha Vasyukova, Clementine draws influences from child psychoanalyst, Donald Winnicott, who had found a similarity between the trauma felt by children who had been bullied in school/home and children who had been displaced by war.
Clementine, McDean and Vasyukova artfully infuses both Winicott’s findings and Clementine’s own childhood memories to create a slightly surreal but meaningful portrayal of childhood experiences and hardship.
A track more than fit for Clementine’s return to the music scene, watch, share and enjoy “Phantom of Aleppoville” down below…
