Live Gig Video: Editors perform ‘Ocean of Night’ at Dublin Olympia

By on Tuesday, 1st December 2015 at 4:00 pm

Editors‘ latest music video, like those for ‘No Harm’, ‘Marching Orders’ and ‘Life is a Fear’ that precede it, was conceived, directed and edited by Iranian-born photographer Rahi Rezvani. It was also filmed in black and white. Unlike those past promos, however, ‘Ocean of Night’ stars scenes of fans in the 1,600-capacity Dublin Olympia Theatre on Dame Street in the Irish capital, as well as pensive moments pre-show of Tom Smith and the band in the opulent red velvet covered and gilded venue when the band performed there in October. (It’s truly a beautiful sight to behold in person in full Technicolor, as I had the pleasure to when I saw the Staves perform there back in May.)

While the video lacks the physical presence of Slowdive’s Rachel Goswell (notably the first time an Editors track has featured a voice of someone from outside the band), her ethereal harmonising vocals that appear on this song and several others on Editors’ current album ‘In Dream’ (Carrie’s review here) still manage to be evocative, despite this minimalist treatment. Watch the new video for ‘Ocean of Night’ below. ‘Ocean of Night’ will be released as a single on the 11th of December on PIAS; ‘In Dream’ is available now.
