Premiere: Watch Neil MacLeod's Visual EP 'We Have Known Lost Days'

Chris Cudby / Wednesday 28th September, 2022 9:00AM

Te Whanganui-a-Tara songwriter and electronic producer Neil MacLeod has emerged from the pandemic years energised, sharing today the multi-media splendour that is his We Have Known Lost Days visual EP. Directed by Oscar Keys, and beautifully shot by Caleb Corlett and Shyam Patel, we're proud to premiere MacLeod's new twenty six minute film, featuring cinematic "enhanced live performances" of every track on the artist's new EP of the same name — including the songs 'Downwards', 'Curer', 'Openly', 'Mouthshut', 'Viscera', 'Taller Than Trees' and 'Once In Love'. Co-produced with regular collaborator Devin Abrams (Shapeshifter, Drax Project, Pacific Heights) and unveiled to the world earlier this month, We Have Known Lost Days is the debut release from Particle Recordings.

Joined by bandmates Reuben Topzand and Hakopa Kuka-Larsen (DARTZ), MacLeod's new film is not only a transportive visual journey but also a captivating document of his live performances. MacLeod takes viewers from shimmering soundscapes to truly epic heights, showcasing his soul-stirring vocal powers while packing enough low-end to provide a body-moving, club-shaking experience — watch below [content warning: strobing imagery]...

“As technology has advanced and tastes have broadened, I believe that the thirst for more integrated live electronica performances has risen. This visual EP aims to showcase my music in exactly this fashion, and to present a different way for listeners to experience the EP. It retains the heavy hitting sonics and digital manipulations from the record, while also offering an incredibly potent emotional interaction with me and my band as we make our way through the 7 song tracklist.” — Neil MacLeod

“It was a joy to work alongside Neil and our amazing team to create these visual performances and get sucked into this unique world... Bringing the inimitable mood and emotion in Neil’s music to life on screen has been an absolute pleasure to be a part of.” — director Oscar Keys
