William Williamson's new music video is as scathingly intense as they come

Posted by James Cartwright,

It’s safe to say that Keaton Henson is uncomfortable in front of the camera, in fact he’s just plain uncomfortable in front of people. The 24-year-old musician and illustrator has notoriously crippling stage fright – he’s has only ever played a handful of live shows – and until now has never appeared in any of his own music videos. Which makes his latest offering Sweetheart, What Have You Done To Us all the more extraordinary. William Williamson’s four-minute video for the track feature’s the artist’s face exclusively, fixing his unwaveringly painful gaze until he can take it no longer. It’s the kind of film you can get utterly lost in and are sure to watch again and again. Breathtaking.
