Dublin-based electronic producer and songwriter Gemma Dunleavy has taken a brief respite from her recent flurry of releases and features as well as a Boiler Room appearance to bring us I Was Never Young But I’m Not Old Yet, an audio-visual art piece.
Landing somewhere between beat poetry and ambient, musically speaking, the overtly political phrasing behind this song is reinforced by the video which accompanies it. Shot in one of the old inner city apartment blocks, the drab cityscape backgrounds are contrasted with the pinks and pastel oranges of the women who feature in the video.
The end result is a captivating piece of art. One which is both visually and lyrically inspirational.
The video is directed by Laragh McCann and DOP was Albert Hooi.
