Moby unveils new video
Moby has made the music video for his latest single 'Lie Down in Darkness' available via his YouTube channel. Watch it here:
The music video, directed by Luke Seomore and Joseph Bull (Institute For Eyes) was shot in London when Moby was in the UK in July and features an old Russian cosmonaut looking back on his time in outer space. Best known for their striking documentary 'Isolation', about former paratrooper Stuart Griffiths, as well as videos for the likes of British Sea Power and Wild Beasts, Institute For Eyes were invited to visually realise Moby's new single, taken from his most recent studio album Destroyed (self-released on Moby's very own label Little Idiot).
'Lie Down In Darkness' is a soulful track of sublime melancholy and symphonic grandeur and the video's narrative reflects this sense of epic scale, as it follows an astronaut looking back on his life of space travel, journeying through an architecturally heightened London.
Shot in contemporary London, the locations for 'Lie Down in Darkness' reference 1960's and 1970's periods, recalling modernist and Soviet austerity. The astronaut travels past such iconic London landmarks as the Barbican Centre and Southbank, in a journey of angles and minimalism, tunnels and flashes of dark and light.
