Watch :: Isaac Gracie shares new video for ‘Running On Empty’
Directed by Stephen Agnew (Wolf Alice, Royal Blood, Drenge), Isaac Gracie shares the video for his new single, 'Running On Empty'. The track features on Isaac’s eponymous debut album, out now through Virgin/EMI.
The video is a tongue-in-cheek look behind the scenes at the filming process of a music promo, with reference to some infamous recording stories of yesteryear, and was shot at Hammerwood Park, East Sussex.
"Isaac is a really interesting artist with a timeless quality, both to his music and aesthetic," says Agnew. "This is paired with a very English sensibility. I thought it would be fun to highlight these things whilst exploring the more esoteric elements musical heritage, in a manor that wasn’t too self-regarding or dark, whilst playing with the stories that surround the recording process. This video is basically that. It draws its inspiration from all over the shop.
“The location is a house that Led Zeppelin owned and that actually featured in ‘The Song Remains The Same’. The video itself is comprised of references and vignettes inspired by the stranger, more esoteric moments in rock music recording history. Some are contrived, some are direct references to pretty infamous anecdotes and characters.’
