Words by Jennifer Williams

Just in time: what surely has the making of the jam of the summer has arrived in the form of the new single and its dizzying video from Irish singer/songwriter and producer Róisín Murphy. The track ‘Ten Miles High’ is taken from her forthcoming album ‘Take Her Up to Monto’, out in July. In the self-directed clip, Murphy takes the viewer on trippy ride through London, from empty car parks to construction sites. Of the video, Murphy says:

It’s ‘reality’ but not as you know it. Akin to ‘realness’ a concept from the New York Gay Ball-Scene, it’s a kind of Drag, playing ‘real’ and ‘accepted’ stereotypes in another kind of environment entirely. Dressing ‘straight’ seamlessly but somehow doing it better and showing how strange and beautiful the ordinary can be if you just see it through a slightly different prism.

Pop a Dramamine and check the clip out below. Róisín Murphy’s new album ‘Take Her Up to Monto’ will be released on the 8th of July on PIAS. Murphy will be hitting the festival circuit this summer with appearances at Glastonbury and Longitude ahead of her landmark performance at London’s Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre on 15 August, as the first artist to ever headline the venue.
