Roisin Murphy has created a proper disco banger in Narcissus, and she has also directed the video for the track which channels the fabulously kitsch glamour of the original Age of Disco.Roisin's love of the Italian 'Queen of TV' Raffaella Carrà, led her to make a fairly faithful recreation of a '70s disco-era performance from her TV show - which has benefitted from added layers of 70s-style video FX.Roisin always keeps within the parameters of a TV-like live performance in real time. But due to a combination of her distinctive charisma, and a brilliant edit by Ben Unwin, this becomes something more than its inspiration. It's an altogether more transcendent experience. It's out there, it's very Roisin, and it's amazing. And, let's face it, right now we need a brilliant song and a video like this.
