David Knight - 17th Oct 2016

The latest video for former Klaxons member James Righton's new project Shock Machine was directed by Nova Dando with a tiny crew - "just three of us up a mountain," she says. But with excellent use of locations, and its repetitive structure it's a fitting interpretation of the song Lost In The Mystery.

Righton runs, falls, and runs again, and always coming back to the same scenes. The mystery is of the 60s or 70s European arthouse movie variety - and the photogenic RIghton looks the part.
