A man is transported into a historical fantasy in this intriguing promo for Ghost Hounds' 'Last Train To Nowhere'. Singer Tré Nation falls asleep on the subway after a long shift at work, and wakes up somewhere entirely different... sporting a cowboy hat and a bright red bandana.
There are women to seduce and sights to see, but the singer soon finds himself stalked by a mysterious veiled figure. Director Jay Arcansalin balances the more fantastical aspects of the narrative with a forensic attention to detail, highlighting design choices like colourful light filtering through stained glass, or the weave of a rough shroud.
This will be the first introduction to the Pittsburgh rock and blues pioneers for most viewers, and the attention-grabbing promo will lead many to seek out more from the group. This is a swaggering slice of solid rock 'n' roll, buoyed by a narrative strong enough to stand up to its sonic counterpart.
