David Knight - 10th Sept 2012

When David Byrne approached Martin De Thurah to make his latest video for his collaboration with St Vincent, Martin wanted to see what happens when a little crowd of people gather 'to explore human existence'.

This involves Annie Clark (aka St. Vincent) lying in the road a lot, David occasionally swigging from a medicine bottle, and a bit of groovy dancing that echoes (very) old Talking Heads videos... The result is witty and charming.

Filmed over a long day in Unionville, upstate New York, the video was beautifully shot by DoP Natasha Braier and edited by Martin's long-term collaborator Mikkel EG Nielsen.

And Martin's intimate portrait of Leslie Feist performing Anti-Pioneer - shot with DoP Kasper Tuxen during downtime on the shoot of The Bad In Each Other video - is here.
