Joe Rodwell is a trumpet playing recording artist who has also been the producer for some of our favourite tracks on Clowdy including previously reviewed album ‘Troubled Water’ by Marco Mestichella.
Noir is the 7th track on the album “Loud Noises in Quiet Spaces”. The first album he’s released under his own name though still full of countless collaborations. Though the album was released a while back, the music video to Noir has just been released and creates a whole story behind the lyrics.
The high note vocals and dramatic jazz orchestra give it a James Bond opening credits kind of feel. So the violence of the music video compliments it well. There’s a great gathering of artists and sounds that deserve a lot of credit;
Sarah Peters-Harrsion – Vocals
Joe Rodwell – Keys, Percussion, Trumpets
Jon Spanyol – Trombones
Cem Andre – Drums
Robin Pearkes – Double Bass
Debbie Chalmers – Violins and Viola
Gillian Wood – Cello
Madeleine has given up her old ways and settled down with an ordinary life playing housewife to her functional, happy family. However the lack of excitement and danger leaves her unfulfilled.
It has to be said that 1848 Media have done an absolute cracking job of the video. Really beautifully shot with the true stylish grit of Noir cinema. And Katharine Davenport plays her femme fatale alter ego really well.
Here’s the music video itself. Enjoy:
