London’s ever-changing landscape becomes the personal playground of singer Róisín Murphy in her new self-directed video.
‘Ten Miles High’ is a dizzying tour of the city, exploring both its architectural highlights and its Tube network using a range of editing techniques such as cutting up, reversing and mirroring images.
‘This visual concept comes directly from my rather exuberant love of architecture, something I’ve had a passion for since my teenage years,’ Murphy told Promo News. ‘I live in London and most of my days are spent marvelling at the ever-changing landscape.’
One of the London locations in ‘Ten Miles High’ is Tottenham Court Road station and its Crossrail construction site, around which Murphy parades dressed in hi-vis clothes. The space-age Westminster station and its cavernous, concrete structure also makes an appearance.
A 1971 multi-storey car park on Welbeck Street, Canary Wharf’s DLR station and Tottenham Mews, near BT Tower, are among the other views on offer.
Added Murphy: ‘The desire is to show you how I see things in the here and now and to do so joyously.’
