Video of the Moment #1505: Nick Mulvey

Globally-influenced singer/songwriter Nick Mulvey has just revealed the video for ‘Meet Me There’, which will be released as a single on the 11th of May ahead of his debut album release, ‘First Mind’, the following day. Mulvey has already introduced ‘Meet Me There’ to his recent live audiences, including a sold out tour of the UK and an appearance in America at SXSW 2014. I was lucky enough to hear the song myself as part of Mulvey’s set at the Communion Showcase during his time in Austin.

The video for ‘Meet Me There’ is Mulvey’s second collaboration with National Geographic videographer James Morgan, who also directed the video for previous single ‘Cucurucu’ (we featured it here back in January). The earthy, natural beauty of the scenery and the people in both videos is a perfect compliment to Mulvey’s very instinctive, organic musical style. ‘Meet Me There’ begins softly, accompanied in the video by the image of pebbles enclosed in a man’s palm, then it slowly breaks free of its own restraint with a crescendo of strings and backing vocals, a musical untethering analogous to the desire for escape in Mulvey’s lyrics, “Oh, there’s a field, meet me there / Out beyond rightness and wrong, meet me there’. The dynamic and emotional swell of the music is matched by the gradual dawning of light across Morgan’s expansive pictorial landscapes in an exceptionally well-executed audio-visual metaphor. Watch it below.
