Hip-hop / grime collective Monster Florence release the official video for their emotive single ‘Handstand’

Following on from the release of the much-loved deluxe edition of their breakthrough EP ‘Cowboys & Idiots’ near the end of last year, British hip-hop / grime collective Monster Florence now return to deliver the official video for one of the release’s standout cuts, ‘Handstand’.

Directed by Scribbler, the new visuals for ‘Handstand’ look to realise the metaphorical meaning behind the song’s deep and personal lyrics. Seeing handstands as a reversal of how friendships and relationships should be by literally flipping life upside down, the members deliver their verses from the ceiling, highlighting how distorted their worlds have become and giving us a powerful and emotional video in the process.

Speaking about the video, director Scribbler said, “Monster Florence lament over the severance of family ties. The video attempts to personify this disconnect by having them spectate past moments of misery from the ceiling – Moments that turned their life upside down. ‘Handstand’ takes us on a journey to closure, eventually bringing life to the idea that we may be products of our past, but we don’t have to be prisoners to it.”

While the band’s Alex Osiris added, “Scribbler really captured the narrative in the visuals for ‘Handstand’ it feels personal and emotional yet stylistic. Each story although different blends from one another seamlessly taking you on a journey that floats between turmoil and love.”
