New Music of the Day – CXIII: Spooky Lover – Saint Leonard’s Horses

image005Directed by Thom Yorke and Massive Attack collaborator Joe Morris, the new video from Saint Leonard’s Horses, ‘Spooky Lover’, was shot at the old Royal London Hospital, most famously inhabited by John Merrick aka the Elephant Man, in the late 19th century. The space itself is now an experimental art gallery but Saint Leonard and the team went in at night to shoot this shadowy film, “The intention was to have no agenda, and no real narrative” says Leonard, “we just turned up at the space and let the song generate the mood, we simply responded to that… I had the idea of trying to create a séance atmosphere with the camera’s rolling… essentially we just blasted the song at dangerously high volumes, let the tequila flow and things inevitably became a bit weird.”

‘Spooky Lover’ is taken from Saint Leonard’s Horses’ debut album ‘Good Luck Everybody’ on 14 October 2016 via Xtra Mile Recordings and it’s available to pre-order here.
