We Gathered In Spring
Bella Union signing, Midlake, have been very busy developing their artistic side of late, they've made videos for most of the songs on their new album, The Trials of Van Occupanther, over the coming weeks, we'll be adding 1 video each week, this week, it's the beautiful We Gathered In Spring.
"The great guys at Make And Do Creative and Nora Sound delivered a very cool video to us for "We Gathered In Spring." The animation style of Monte Python's Flying Circus somehow works perfectly with the sombre tone of the song. The contrast between the day time and night time shots through the city, overlooking the lone tree on the hill, looks incredible. This song was one of the first songs to be recorded for the album, and really helped set the tone for the rest of the record. The feelings of isolation, timelessness, and sadness are all evident in this video. We have never performed this song with an accompanying video, so I am looking forward to the next tour, where others will get to see what these guys have come up with". - McKenzie Smith, Midlake Drummer.
There are currently five separate teams working on 'Game of Thrones' projects at HBO.
She's a big fan of the band and this week she got to perform with them.
