Video of the Moment #2465: Lost Horizons

By on Thursday, 2nd November 2017 at 6:00 pm

Lost Horizons is the relatively new act of ex-Cocteau Twins bassist Simon Raymonde and ex-Jesus and the Mary Chain drummer Richie Thomas. Their debut album, ‘Ojalá’, will be out tomorrow, this year being 20 years since the start of Raymonde’s celebrated indie label Bella Union. This week, the pair have a new video out, which follows previously revealed tracks ‘Bones’, ‘She Led Me Away’ and ‘I Saw the Days Go By’.

‘Score the Sky’ is an instrumentally evocative number, augmented beautifully with guest vocals from The Duke Spirit‘s Liela Moss. Director Derrick Belcham gives his thoughts on the visuals to go along with the song: “The video for ‘Score the Sky’ is an attempt to visualize the kind of mystical experience of achieving a sense of oneself, constantly switching between chasing and fleeing elements of the psyche that are buried, and either want to stay that way, or else come erupting forth. The dancers, Nicole and Rebecca, explore the decks of the SS Columbia as a borrowed symbolic environment for the labyrinthine passageways of persona and complex, all taking place in the mind of one woman, likely in a single moment.” Deep, eh? You can watch Belcham’s handiwork below. You can get ‘Ojalá’ for your very own from Bella Union tomorrow.
