WATCH: RÓISÍN MURPHY ‘LIVE @ HOME’ – A series of 6 ground-breaking short films created in lockdown

Róisín Murphy

Róisín Murphy created a series of 6 performance videos for the renowned Manchester club night Homoelectric’s recent Stay Homo 12 hour live stream – a rave for these times – and you can now watch them in all their glory here.  Murphy’s 25-year career has been one of unbridled,  unmatched creativity and these mind-melting,  breath-taking videos,  all made in her living room during the lockdown, once again showcase why she is such a trailblazer.  They are pure magic.

“I’ve spent the last six weeks mainly in my ex-boyfriend’s grey towelling dressing gown so I jumped at the chance to play dress up. And I would do anything for Luke, Homoelectric is part of my DNA, I’ve had so many good nights out in Manchester at his parties. Formative. 

I had a little under a week to get it together but thankfully I had already been mulling over the idea of trying to recreate my one-woman show in my living room. To that end, I had already been in discussions with my L.D. Tom Schofield as to how it would be possible to bring the live visuals that we’ve been working on in the past year into my home environment.  

They’re not pop videos, these are true live performances. With my partner Sebastiano Properzi and Tom we rigged lighting in the room and created a green screen effect, all the lighting and effects were being triggered live along with my live performance and vocal. 

This is what feels exciting.”

Murphy also debuted the Cosmodelica Remix of her heavenly recent single “Murphy’s Law” during this series of dizzying performances,  more to come on this very soon…

Last month Murphy co-hosted a 3fm show from her living room and more recently fans voted to celebrate and delve into her “Overpowered” album as part of Tim Burgess’ “#Timstwitterlisteningparty”,  which has become the most replayed of the series.  So much so that Murphy is returning on June 19th to discuss seminal Moloko record “Statues”.

If this hive of activity wasn’t enough,  expect a full-length album in the summer featuring all of Murphy’s iconic singles with DJ Parrot alongside brand new tracks.
