With his debut solo album as Shock Machine set for release this month - it’s out on 25th August via Marathon Artists - ex-Klaxon James Righton has shared a video for ‘Unlimited Love’.
“’Unlimited Love’ is a Bonny and Clyde, whatever-happens-we’ll-survive, us-against-the-world song,” James says. “The title came first and after that I wanted a song that felt lyrically relentless and unbreakable. During the making of the video, I randomly bumped into someone who introduced me to Sophie Muller. I showed Sophie the video when it was just composed of the red studio shots. Sophie thought it needed more and suggested I film lots of footage of me wearing the suits in interesting locations while in Budapest. I then sent her my footage and she made an incredible edit splicing everything together. It was amazing to see that you don’t always need specific rules or a detailed brief to make a music video. She also gave me a master class in editing/grading so I’ve started making my own videos now. She’s pretty inspiring.”
