James Blake ‘Overgrown’ by Nabil
Nabil Elderkin has created a majestic and mysterious music video for James Blake’s Overgrown – the second single from the acclaimed second album with the same name – which really captures the nature of Blake’s music.
At first, sitting in a bedroom with a view on a natural scene in fast forward, Blake leaves what turns out to be a floating house in a field as night falls, walking through fields and forest towards the sea – shadowed by swirling black-robed figures. The video has serenity, sense of place, mystery (are those black figures real?) and a stronger performance from Blake himself than in his previous videos.
Nabil shot the video in California, and it features the dancing talents of Lil’ Buck and his crew as the reaper-like figures that follow the singer – and it was shot day-for-night in camera by Nabil’s regular DoP Danny Hiele.
