Our music video of the week comes from Gregory Alan Isakov and his brand new video for Amsterdam.
The charming video was directed by Laura Goldhamer and filmed over the course of six weeks, using stop-motion animation, dioramas and live shadow puppetry. It was made at the farm that is home to the musician himself, further aiding the collaborative and organic nature of the video’s creation.
Amsterdam is taken from Isakov’s recent album, The Weatherman, and is inspired by his time in The Netherlands (in case the name didn’t give it away). It’s a melancholy and gentle folk track, with hushed vocals and heart-felt lyrics.
Isakov will be returning to the country that inspired the song as part of his nineteen-date European tour, with five UK dates starting in Brighton tonight.
Upcoming UK Live Dates:
Fri Oct 17 / Brighton / Komedia Studio Bar
Sat Oct 18 / Bristol / Louisiana
Sun Oct 19 / Glasgow / King Tut’s
Mon Oct 20 / Manchester / Gullivers
Tue Oct 21 / London / Bush Hall
