Interview with ON RUNNING SHOES

-->  Up-and-coming artists film with On



"Epic and emotional: Mantocliff debut stylish new music video ‘These Words"

--> Nothing but Hope and Passion


"The FKA Twigs-esque 5-piece’s new video perfectly complements the track, featuring some beautiful raw choreography which is further enhanced by the digital projections and lighting. The track’s trippy vibrant energy is perfectly captured in the video, balancing the light and dark of the song with slow, gentle movements that build up to quicker and energetic, almost frantic dancing."

--> aaabackstage

"Visually illustrating Onori’s lyrics exploring the tangled nature of personal relationships and the marks they leave, it compliments the song at every point."
