Description

As part of the BFI's Coast and Sea project, Malojian's Stevie Scullion has been working with filmmaker Colm Laverty on a series of audio-visual collaborations that creatively repurpose content from Northern Ireland Screen's Digital Film Archive.

The latest installment is the video for 'Ambulance Song'. The woozy, daydream nostalgia of the tune is beautifully complemented by a video that draws on the 1950s' revival spirit of the Spence Brothers' Greenisland Rock, with excerpts from the original film seamlessly stitched together with new footage and far-out effects.

'Ambulance Song' is the second release from the album, Let Your Weirdness Carry You Home.
