"The Lost Gecko - C Saw Video"

Cork band The Lost Gecko are set to release their new EP 'Unphotographable' on the 19th August 2016. To coincide with this release a beautiful new video for song 'C Saw' has also been released, which I am delighted to premiere exclusively on The OB.

Directed by award winning animator Marc Corrigan (Hamsandwich’s Ants, Cat Dowling, I'm From Barcelona), the video is a charming and heartfelt accompaniment to the powerful lyrics. Utilising stop-motion against a green screen, the animations are then imposed over painted backgrounds. It takes the often-used literary motif of the sea to portray the song’s lyrical themes.

'C Saw' has a heartfelt tone about it. The emotional spoken words like poetry over the accompanying music set the scene from the get go. The EP continues with in the same vein with 'Rabbitfoot', this time with the vocals sung that transition into an emotional heartbreaking moment where you can't seem to let go of a lover.

'Rescued By Waves' has a more polished sound with lyrics that draw on nature over constant vibrato strings. The last track on the EP is the title track which feels separate from the rest of the EP with guitar drones that have a hint of U2. This is the strongest track on the EP for me and sounds like it would have the biggest impact as a live track.

Now firmly planted in Ireland Scots clan man Malcolm Urquhart better known as The Lost Gecko has searched high and far for himself through his music , from Kenya to Cork the Geckos world of truths and lies have been inherited by his latest body of songs , 'Unphotographable'. Crushing vocals reaching high into your mind and a mixed bag of thunder drums , soft guitar rain , dancing fiddlers on a hot tin roof and boombastic basses as a backdrop would make a dead man weep and wine for joy and mercy .

The Geckos lactating lyrics potray a burnt out mind fired by the heart of a lion .But have no fear It is a feast not for the faint hearted and is of nice and ice and unforgettably Un-photographable so step into the Gecko world and lose your mind or someone else will. You've been warned now enter .
