"So I Think We've Burned Our Bridges"

I've always been a fan of Killer Mike, so when he teamed up with El-P to form Run the Jewels, it definitely got my attention. While they play a supporting role in the track below with Until the Ribbon Breaks, I loved Killer Mike's verse over the experimental synth-pop style beat. I'll be the first to admit that I had not heard of the British trio before the track, but the fact that they were able to reel in Mike and El-P for a somber track was a nice surprise. Dap is in order for Peter Lawrie Winfield and Storme Whitby Grubb for the direction on the video too. Cool mix of camera shots that did what a good video should do, give added context and intrigue through visuals to augment the audio. For reference, Until the Ribbon Breaks' debut album A Lesson Unlearnt is due out in early 2015 if you feel like investing via iTunes...
