The Shakedown is the title track from Tenderlonious’s debut album, featuring The 22archestra (a dream team of top talent, rounded-up after he was invited to record at Abbey Road Studios).
Ed (Tenderlonious) Cawthorne originally came to us with a film script based on the track and our piece tries to capture the essence of his original vision with the late night mood, mysterious characters and sense of suspense but adapted through a Plastic Horse lens.
Our video follows Tender as he drives to the Jazz Club, seeking answers to why he hasn’t been paid for last week’s show.
