#FridayFeeling Róisín Murphy – ‘Narcissus’

Now well and truly established as her own creative-director, Róisín Murphy has blessed us with another incredible, self-directed video. For her brand new, string-drenched, hard-driven disco epic “Narcissus”, Murphy channels the mood at the very height of Disco, filtered through the lens of late seventies primetime Italian Television, taking particular inspiration from the Italian ‘Queen of TV’ Rafaella Carrrà. Indeed, over the course of 6 brilliantly eye strobing minutes, Róisín gets the details of the legendary Italian icon just right but gives it her own typically off-kilter spin.  A “colourgasm” and “joyfully vulgar” according to Murphy. The layers of psychedelic visuals and pulsating lights in the background are nicely offset by a brooding performance. Dressed entirely in black, Róisín is a vision of a darker kind of disco Queen.
