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 'Let Your Weirdness Carry You Home', the title track on Malojian's fourth album. A beautifully wistful and contemplative tune is accompanied by a delightful video, with archive footage - not least a number of the Spence Brothers' fantastical creations - providing a glorious backdrop.
