Video: 'This Old Dark Machine'
Highlight: "The idea for the video was really simple: create something dreamy and beautiful to fit the song as it moved along. I didn't want anything narrative. It was more about abstract imagery," James Vincent McMorrow tells Spinner. "An amazing Irish director named Myles O'Reilly put it together for me. He recorded footage of my last Dublin show and it just looked incredible; some of it actually ended up sneaking into this video too. It was his idea to film me singing the song in silhouette and superimpose other footage on top of it. I'm always reluctant to be in videos or photos. It was a really interesting way of side-stepping that!"
