Video Premiere: Bodies – Nightmoves


The solo project of Dublin’s David Anthony McGeown, Bodies started out when the musician “had the idea of writing something that documents that mid-twenties period in a persons life where you go through things that teach you how to interact with the world. Not the coming of age high school/ college period but the moments in your life where you – truly fall in love, understanding friendship, dealing with death/mental health for the first time as an adult etc.”

The first manifestation of that decision is ‘Nightmoves’, an impressively earworming debut track from McGeown that marries dark lyricism with a masterfully twisted, festive-themed video starring Eddie Jackson (Game of Thrones). This is surely right up there with the most curious and captivating debut singles from an Irish artist this year. Have a first look below.
