Video of the day: Cosmo Sheldrake – ‘Pliocene’

Check out this incredible video for Sheldrake’s latest single ‘Pliocene’. Filmed just outside Barcelona, Sheldrake takes part in a Hot Air Balloon festival – and performs the song thousands of feet in the air, overlooking the beautiful landscapes of the city. Watch it above!

About the video
I am very grateful to have worked with Orban Wallace from Gallivant films who directed this video. We filmed it the morning after England were kicked out of the World Cup, which certainly changed the tone of our day. We watched the match in a strange truck stop on the side of the motorway on the outskirts of Igualada, where the balloon convention was happening, and an hour outside of Barcelona. We were due to arrive at the field that we were going to take off from at 6 am, and awoke at 5 a.m to a big thunderstorm. By the time we arrived at the field and the sun had risen the worst of the storm had passed and we had to wait a couple of hours for the last of the ominous clouds to blow away. Eventually we were given the green light and began loading the gear into the balloon. From there on everything ran fairly smoothly apart from one of the camera men who was in a different balloon crash landing into some trees on his way down with a fairly young pilot at the helm.” – Cosmo Sheldrake
