Video: Delaney Davidson - Down On Me (UTR Premiere)

Friday 31st October, 2014 9:54AM

Black and white footage shot in the period between World War One and World War Two has been stitched together to create a new video for Delaney Davidson's single 'Down On Me'. The grainy images were captured by Jacques Naegeli, who after WWI acquired 35mm film equipment and built his own lab in his laundry room. After mastering the gear he set off from Switzerland for places like Sicily, Palestine, Egypt, Athens, Korfu and Turkey, managing to capture some amazing moments along the way.

For the 'Down On Me' video, Naegeli's descendants permitted Davidson to use footage from his Bergstieg shoot, as well as his Eagles (Adlerhorst), Mountain Goat (Gemsen) and Skiing (Skispringen) footage. This has been woven with freshly shot images of Delaney to create a loose storyline by his long-time London collaborator Chris Martin. 'Down On Me' is taken from Davidson's latest album Swim Down Low, which is being supported by a nationwide tour during November, see details below, but first feast your eyes on the new video...
