Check out this ah-mazing video from Spoek Mathambo’s debut album single, Control, a cover of Joy Division’s She Lost Control.

The video was shot in collaboration with one of South Africa’s most influential photographers, Pieter Hugo, and cinematographer, Micheal Cleary.

The beautiful black and white 3-minute music film, which was shot in Langa, Cape Town, explores the subject of township cults and teen gangs. It is definitely, positively, and absolutely worth three minutes of your day.
