Well, holy mother of jeepers, it’s the sort of steamy video that could make Murt Davis crank a shaft, blow a gasket and stick his boot through a Holy Rosary stained glass window.
That this promo for Irish singer/songwriter Fia Moon’s latest r&b single, Let It Go, was largely shot at his beloved Greystones garage can only add to the pure pop thrill of it all.
Shot entirely on an iPhone, director Zoe Ardriff took the Dart with Moon from Dun Laoghaire to Greystones, shooting dream-like sequences along the journey, on the seafront and outside one of this town’s most iconic buildings.
All the while, our sultry, starry-eyed, hip-swaying protagonist – niece of Greystones’ Orla Mulhern, no less, the brains behind the town’s Perfect English School – is carrying white balloons, there to represent past relationships that Ms Moon is determined to unburden herself from. They’re also handy for killing birds.
Talking to Clash magazine (where Let This Gomade their Track Of The Day), director Ardiff said, “I wanted this video to capture the feeling of letting go of a relationship that is no longer benefiting you. It’s also a reminder to people to have the confidence to go on dates with yourself without feeling that you need someone to be with you.”
Hey, plenty of people have dates with themselves. And it can get pretty steamy too.
You can catch Fia Moon have her wicked way with those unsuspecting Greystones petrol pumps below. The Davis diesel devilment starts at 0:50…
