Lights, camera, action! (but mainly lights) ISO Studio's video for Simian Mobile Disco

Posted by Liv Siddall,

At my school there was a dark corridor that was fitted with a motion sensor which triggered a symphony of flickering lights as a welcoming ceremony to anyone who stepped on to its carpeted floors. I had forgotten about the joy of triggering this motion sensor until yesterday until this new video for Simian Mobile Disco’s track Your Love Ain’t Fair shot by Laurence Stephens and edited by Kate Moross and Hans Lo for ISO Studio. Watch like a happy moth as hundreds of clips of lights, ranging from streetlights, to Anglepoises, to faded 1970’s monstrosities switch on and off in time to the music, which probably not coincidentally has a sort of electronic current sound to it. The money shot? About 50 lights stuttering to attention in a small prayer room – beautiful.
