WIRE High (music video by Eric Scott)

Wire “High” Music Video – from pf22 ‘Wire’ (1:58)

Music promo for WIRE High from their 14th album release “Wire”, out April 2015 on Pink Flag. Video created by Eric Scott (Day For Night).

“…It all began (rather unassumingly) as ‪#‎iPhone6‬ concert footage which I shot at the Echoplex L.A. show last May, having no plans in mind, and quickly turned into this. I found myself playing in After Effects and before I knew it, hours had passed and I was proceeding with confidence that there was an idea to explore, some visual contrasts to do with altitude and time.

“’High’ was immediately a standout track for me, from a tremendous 14th album (the self-titled ‘WIRE’). The song is buoyant with these soaring emotional highpoints in the poetic text, which is as beautifully cryptic as with so many of Graham Lewis’s lyrics. Meanwhile, the overall structure (A-B-A-B-C) contains some brilliant nuances, from the minor-to-major shifts which signals the chorus. Wire’s art-rock perspective on this results in something that is musically very satisfying, even in the less-likeliness of a ‘pop’ event… it is all-the-while SO subtle in so many more ways than one. A real gem of a song, it needed to become a single!”

Tall Grey Buildings ~ Malka Spigel ~ Video

Tall Grey Buildings :: Radio Edit Version (3:30)

This is the music promo created by Eric Scott for “Tall Grey Buildings” by Malka Spigel, which has an official release with the EP “Gliding” on the Swim~ label on May 19. Enjoy the trippy kaleidoscopic and time-lapse sequences shot around LA and London during 2013, and edited to Malka’s shoegaze/dream pop sound, and visually inspired by her richly colorful Lomo stills (https://bit.ly/1hLZr1X).

And, there is also a full length version too. This version matches the mix on the EP, preserving some additional Venice Beach and Santa Monica footage shot during the original videography.

Malka’s songwriting and recording career spans back to the early 1980s where, as bassist and vocalist in the Euro-Israeli post-punk band Minimal Compact, she eventually met her future husband and collaborator Colin Newman (Wire). The two of them are also members together in the bands Immersion and Githead, and presently continue to work and tour with their original bands.

“Tall Grey Buildings” is produced by Colin Newman (guitar) with musical contributions by Ronald Lippok (drums), Julie Campbell (guitar), Matthew Simms (guitar), Uri Frost (keyboards) and Gil Luz (keyboards).
