Upcoming six-piece group Morganway have released the video for “London Life”, which featured on their self-titled debut album that was released earlier this year.
Formed up of members Callum Morgan, Kieran Morgan, Matt Brocklehurst, SJ Mortimer, Nicole J Terry, & Edward Bullinger, this group have been making waves within the music scene with their distinctive musical style.
This single features a country-rock vibe that allows this group to deliver a heartfelt performance that showcases their creative talents.
Speaking about their latest video release, Callum said “The story is simple, the highs and lows of a couple finding their way in London, and ultimately something is lost in the relationship, and they both end up on their own. Throughout the video we get glimpses of the underlying sadness, despite regularly showing the more ‘upbeat’, and I like this contradiction. It’s almost as if, the story operates outside any linear time-frame, and while it looks like a day in the life, it could just so easily be a metaphor for that entire relationship, however long or short-lived it was.”
He continued “I directed and shot the video with Richard Ecclestone, who is a professional music photographer. It stars Isla Jackson-Ritchie, who played Sarah in Netflix’s Top Boy. She stars alongside Josef Altin, who was in Game of Thrones. We were granted permission to film in Rough Trade East, and Non Stop Vintage, the other stuff was captured somewhat spontaneously in public spaces“.
“We also used footage from our sold out show at The Green Note back in August. We wanted to blend raw, fan shot footage of the band amongst the narrative of the video. We didn’t want the footage to detract from the story, and we felt this way the band becomes as much a part of the scenery, of “London Life”, as opposed to being a distraction. It almost felt more authentic this way, rather than something purposely shot / mimed, and was deliberately cut quickly not allowing the audience too long to get any more drawn to the band.”
