The video shows a beautiful outdoor performance by Anna Mieke as well as shots of Dublin's docklands.
Irish songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Anna Mieke has teamed up with film-maker Myles O'Reilly to create a captivating new live video for her debut album title track 'Idle Mind'. The performance was filmed in the docklands in Dublin.
Anna Mieke says, "Cranes were hovering above us like vultures, with yet another shiny office block or hotel on the horizon. The song expresses a frustration towards apathy, in the face of dramatically changing landscapes. Working with Myles was an obvious choice - we've worked together before and he's a brilliant filmmaker. Our original plan was to shoot the performance inside, but Myles insisted on an outside shot in the dimming light."
Anna Mieke's debut album Idle Mind was released in April. Check it out below:
The singer-songwriter was recently awarded the Next Generation Bursary Award from the Arts Council of Ireland, and will be taking time to work on new material at an artist residency in Co. Kerry in early spring.
Closing out 2019, Anna Mieke will perform live at Canton Casey's in Mullingar on November 29, and for Other Voices Dingle on November 30-31.
