Video Premiere: Róisín Murphy – Ten Miles High

Another killer single from Murphy, as the build up to the release of new album Take Her Up To Monto continues, ‘Ten Miles High’ sees the electronica songstress take the helm for the self-directed, self-styled, self-starring video. Sharp, funky and in typical Murphy fashion, ‘Ten Miles High’ quickly becomes a futuristic ballad of soaring vocals and synthesiser acrobatics. Check out that trippy, kaleidoscopic, video, of which Murphy has said, “It’s “reality” but not as you know it.  Akin to ‘realness’ a concept from the New York Gay Ball-Scene, it’s a kind of Drag, playing ‘real’ and ‘accepted’ stereotypes in another kind of environment entirely. Dressing ‘straight’ seamlessly but somehow doing it better and showing how strange and beautiful the ordinary can be if you just see it through a slightly different prism.”
