Take a night-time drive with Elliott Power in his latest video for his minimal electronic track Murmur by Toby Dye. Lit only by the glow of moonlight, street lamps and neon signs - and photographed by Lol Crawley BSC – the darkly-toned video captures all kinds of goings-on only to be witnessed at night-time...

"The video is made up of 25+ hours of documentary-style footage, as it was important to make the video feel authentic as possible," explains Elliott Power. "A lot of the shots are by chance, simply being in the right place at the right time. Our loose reference points were a handful of great British music videos from the 90's, Scorsese's Taxi Driver and Michael Mann's Collateral.

"Toby wanted a nonchalant performance to contrast with the fast moving pace of a Dystopian London. The video is bigger than music, bigger than Elliott Power. This is London... here and now!"

TOBY DYE:

“This video is the result of a really enjoyable collaboration between Elliot, James Lavelle and myself. I’ve always loved the aesthetic of cities photographed by night, and when I heard ‘Murmur’, with its undertones of hazy noir, I knew that nocturnal London, in all its beauty and brutality, was the perfect setting for the video.“
