Watch: Freddie Dickson – Shut Us Down

09 May 2013, 15:35 | Written by Dan Carson

We were genuinely taken aback by the startling depth of young Londoner Freddie Dickson’s debut track ‘Shut Us Down’ last month. A surefooted march through melodramatic realms stewarded so commandingly by Frank Ocean and Lana Del Rey of late; the track announced Dickson as the dark horse of British pop-noir this year.

The 24-year-old singer-songwriter surfaced once more this week with the stirring video for ‘Shut Us Down’. The Charlotte Rutherford-directed clip projects sepia-edged family film onto the faces of Dickson and his cherubic female co-star. His despondent sighs of, ‘Is your love still strong enough?’ sounding more purposeful than ever before, hovering over the pensive beats and poignant visuals.

Dickson will release his debut EP later this month and performs live with a full band at Ginglik London tomorrow night.
