Studio photography and videography for alternative-rock band Modern Rituals.
Last year Modern Rituals invited us down to The Bookhouse, where they were recording their second album ‘This Is The History’. We took stills and video of the session, as well as some promo shots outside the studio for the band to use in press.
The band were tracking live together, which made for a great energy in the room and some exciting, natural images. When editing these we opted for a more grungy, grainy aesthetic than usual to match Modern Rituals’ sound. Their music also contains beautiful, lush moments however, and we tried to capture this dichotomy in the two promo videos we produced.
The photo and video we delivered was used by both the band and their label, Holy Roar, to promote the album on social media. ‘This Is The History’ was released in March 2020 and is available here: https://modernrituals.bandcamp.com/album/this-is-the-history
