Jimmy Brown - 15th Sept 2014

Simple Minds are back making new music in the spirit of their early electronica, and Damien Reeves' promo for Blindfolded is characterised by moving landscapes split mid-screen, captured on a train journey through Europe. It's a cool effect, and added to the constant motion perfectly compliments the trucking groove of the Minds' soundtrack.

DAMIEN REEVES:

"This video is all about discovery and rushing through our lives, not realising the strange beauty around us. The song feels industrial, feels like it is moving - that was the inspiration behind the video.

"Commissioned through Creative Commission, this was a fun idea that allows a complete manipulation of image to create a backdrop for the song. Literally putting the world on it's head. There were some weird and wonderful results, but I do recommend sitting back from your screen when watching it! It was important that there is enough variation, a progression and keeps you interested to the finish.

"It will be great to see if anyone can spot where certain parts of the video were filmed."
