Watch: The Mighty Stef – Nightwatchman of the Iveagh Flats


Bearing the influence of its producer, Alain Johannes (Queens of the Stone Age, Them Crooked Vultures) Dublin rock band The Mighty Stef have released the video to their masterfully moody new single, ‘Nightwatchman of the Iveagh Flats’.

Propelled by frontman Stefan Murphy’s gruff vocal tones – think Mark Lanegan via Nick Cave, Ian McCulloch and (good) Bono – the song is set for a worldwide digital release on February 14.

Reflecting the band’s passion for horror movies and culture, the video was shot at various locations around Dublin City in January and is “the tale of a local rock band who incur the wrath of an irate neighbor who later falls foul to the calmly psychotic, local vigilante known as ‘the nightwatchman'”.

The Mighty Stef play Dublin’s Whelan’s on Friday.
