Video of the Moment #2896: Miles Kane

 
By on Tuesday, 9th October 2018 at 6:00 pm
 

Singer/songwriter Miles Kane, whose stint with The Last Shadow Puppets by now feels like ancient history, has put out new promo video for the latest track from his recent solo album ‘Coup de Grace’. The LP was released back in August on Virgin EMI, following its early teaser single ‘Cry On My Guitar’. Kane’s new track, titled ‘Killing the Joke’, is mildly psychedelic in its sound and perhaps a more than a bit ironic in its lyrics.

The video treatment for ‘Killing the Joke’ was created by Daniele Cavalli and Manfredi Lucibello and set against the scenic backdrop of Florence. Its action sequences feature Kane alternately driving a sports car, wandering through empty yet architecturally striking corridors and drinking scotch in a deserted bar decorated with an assortment of crystal decanters. The black and white videography emphasises the kaleidoscopic reflection of light from the various gleaming surfaces and the sharp relief provided by the interplay of the resulting shadows.

You can watch the promo for ‘Killing the Joke’ just below, and if you’re a Miles Kane fan, check out his November and December UK tour dates, listed at the bottom of the page. A full listing of Kane’s upcoming live dates can be found on his official Facebook. TGTF’s previous coverage of Miles Kane is back through here.

Video of the Moment #2891: Metric

 
By on Tuesday, 25th September 2018 at 6:00 pm
 

Canadian electropop band Metric have taken a different tack for the theme in their new music video than their contemporaries would have. Their intent for the new promo was to be as realistic as possible: ‘Now or Never Now’ was filmed in environments both musicians and music lovers are very familiar with: within the small hours in a nightclub and in a city where most of the revelers have gone and the only people left are those who have to be there. As provided on the press release:

“Many music videos take place in night clubs,” notes Nicholson [director Lorraine Nicholson], “very few depict them as they so often are: pensive, dark and depressing.” Metric frontwoman Emily Haines adds, “This was a night shoot leading to dawn, as Lorraine wanted to place the video in those most questionable hours of the morning…I’m profoundly lost and alone with random uncaring strangers…the rest of the band is on an urgent quest to find me and rescue me from this sad existence, but they always arrive too late.”

‘Now or Never Now’ appears on the band’s newest record ‘Art of Doubt’, available now from MMI/Crystal Math Music. The group will begin their world tour in support of the new album on the 25th of October in Moscow. The four UK dates on the tour are listed below and are on sale now. North American dates are expected to be announced soon, and you can check back periodically on the band’s official Web site for more details. Itching to read further in our archive on Metric? Right this way.
