Todd and Guy Speakman, also known as Speakman Sound, have released a music video for their latest single 'In Flight'. The duo are brothers from London, who have steadily gained interest for their electronica from groups like Ministry of Sound, BBC Radio 1, Amazing Radio and BBC 6Music.
The video depicts many evocative images: birds in flight, hiking boots in the snow, tropical leaves and ice on a beach - steadily lapped at by the waves. It conjures the sense of a whole united world, captured on film, from rivers to mountains to forests. Perhaps the main focus of the video, is a collection of school children from various racial backgrounds, seen dancing around a collection of balloons on a piece of paper on the floor. All at once, they begin to stamp on the balloons as part of the collective dance, and it is revelled that they are filled with paint. They dance and laugh and spray paint all over the large sheet of paper, along to the lyrics 'We will move our feet to see the world'. This all culminates in the children leaving the paper, to show a messy, yet beautifully depicted map of the entire world, painted from their dancing.
