Rottingdean Bazaar isn't a single, lone ranger in the music video scene; it's not a 'he'. Quite conversely, it's the spectacularly eccentric creative exploration of two distinct minds - James Theseus Buck and Luke Brooks. They are known for their unorthodox approach to design, fashion, cinematography, and quite profoundly, music videos. A dynamic duo with a gift for blending the mundane with the outrageous, they've managed to make quite an impact in the industry with their boundary-pushing visuals.

Their work has the dexterity to turn the music video sphere on its head, and it's no more evident than in their collaboration with artist Kero Kero Bonito. In the video for "Only Acting," they made the genius move to create a visual narrative that glitches and distorts just as one might expect from a typical television broadcasting error. Its unique storytelling style left an indelible mark on the industry for its audacious and refreshing approach. Another remarkable creation by Rottingdean Bazaar was their video for "Dum Surfer" by King Krule. The video is undeniably distinctive—eerie yet fascinating, it transports viewers into a macabre world of zombie-like band members and smoky late-night streets. It echoes the duo's unparalleled talent for crafting an engaging and somewhat haunty atmosphere.

Did you know, in a move as surprising as their video concepts, Buck and Brooks named their project after the small English coastal town they dwell in, Rottingdean? It reflects their love for blending the highly unexpected with startlingly normal, resulting in beautifully strange outcomes that make their way into music video history. Their artistic prowess breathes new life into the industry, and we can't wait to see what other peculiar delights Rottingdean Bazaar brings to the screen in the future.
