Changeling” is the third single taken from ALISON MOYET‘s critically-acclaimed album the minutes (Cooking Vinyl/Metropolis Records).
The song finds Alison’s voice on strong and seductive form, with its powerful, experimental and dramatic style indicative of the boundary-pushing album as a whole.
Alison will be coming to the U.S. for three performances – San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York City. This tour places the minutes center-stage, and will also focus on the significant electronic material in her back catalogue.
“The video is inspired by a feeling of displacement that Alison described experiencing when she wrote the song,” explains director Cat Botibol. “She found herself looking down at people from a high-up hotel window – feeling strange and like an alien, as they scurried like ants around the city streets. I flipped this on its head and shot Alison singing on her own, underneath the city in the vaults under Waterloo station. The crowds of people are represented in a projected world, casting light and shadow onto Alison. I brought the choreographer Ann Pidcock on board to work with Alison to move her body into awkward, angular shapes that took influence from the jerkiness of the track. We took some styling and lighting references from David Lynch’s ‘Eraserhead‘ to further accentuate the feeling of displacement.”
