Video: Midlake – The Old & The Young
Following the release of their fourth album Antiphon and with a six-date UK tour coming up in February, Midlake have just unveiled the new video for album highlight The Old & The Young.
Directed by Ollie Murray (The Horrors, The Vaccines) in Hillesden, Buckinghamshire on the sheep farm he grew up on, the video features Jon Campling – who appeared in the last two Harry Potter movies as the leader of the Death Eaters – as the hermit.
Antiphon is Midlake’s first album since the departure of singer-songwriter Tim Smith. It finds the Denton, Texas band back on fine form as they revisit the spectral pysch-folk sound of their acclaimed second full-length The Trials Of Von Occupanther.
