In his new video, Will Joseph Cook plays a the role of a martian-robot, a Neil Buchanan-esque TV art presenter, a fitness instructor and a news reporter. Say what you like about him, but it doesn’t look he’ll be out of work any time soon.
The accompanying track equals the quirkiness of the video, with a killer chorus and a stamp of uniqueness from the Tunbridge Wells musician. But what was it like to flit around to accommodate all these different personas?
“It was a pretty mad day filming it,” Cook tells NME. We had one day to get everything done. This probably would have been fine if there weren’t like 10 costume and make-up changes – I had to re-apply the full silver robot make-up three times. We must all suffer for our art.”
Re-applying silver face paint three times? Suffering indeed. Well, at least he’s got a Halloween costume sorted…
Cook’s song ‘Sweet Dreamer’ is available now and you can see him perform it live at a handful of shows across the country in the coming months.
