Hold My Hand

 

“Hold My Hand” is the latest offering from Black Dog Films as part of the ongoing creative relationship between them and music producer and DJ James Lavelle.

The film was spontaneous, almost guerrilla like in its conception and execution, done in 24 hours and featuring the phenomenal performance artist Miss Crash, a friend of Lavelle’s.

“We were interested in the power of the performer and her sexuality rather than the titillation of the audience. Observing her and her pre show process, what she puts herself through to prepare for this incredible show, its really intimate. It was great to get a sneaky look behind the curtain at that. To gain access to see her in a way the audience doesn’t. Trying to capture that.”

This is the second video to “Hold My Hand” and was approached as a visual remix of the song.

“We often remix and remaster old records but rarely do we go back and remix videos. Sometimes we get videos wrong but as the visual identity of UNKLE and everything I do is so important I wanted to revist this song and give it a new lease of life”

The Rip

As she walks in the room
Scented and tall
Hesitating once more
And as I take on myself
And the bitterness I felt
I realise that love flows
Wild, white horses
They will take me away
And the tenderness I feel
Will send the dark underneath
Will I follow?
Through the glory of life
I will scatter on the floor
Disappointed and sore
And in my thoughts I have bled
For the riddles I’ve been fed
Another lie moves over
Wild, white horses
They will take me away
And the tenderness I feel
Will send the dark underneath
Will I follow?
Wild, white horses
They will take me away
And the tenderness I feel
Will send the dark underneath
Will I follow?

….prophetically beautiful, both musically and thematically.
