Published Sep 17, 2014The Provincial Archive's song "The Market" is a fairly laid-back indie rock tune, but the video is teeming with tension and intensity.
The clip for this bouncy, horn-spiked track shows frontman Craig Schram robbing a market and running away wearing a balaclava. He eventually ditches both the mask and his bag of loot, but that doesn't stop the very pissed-off store clerk from pursuing him with a baseball bat.
Schram said in a statement, "Running a half-kilometre sprint and lip-syncing to high-speed archive lyrics was definitely a challenge." It was directed by Dylan Rhys Howard.
