The Maccabees

„It looks like the future“, Orlando says, when he comes out of the Gasometer venue and sees the mix of old an modern buildings, the industrial landscape with occasional steeples towering. If it’s the future, it’s a crisp one, though, and the singer of Brighton-based The Maccabees might have regret his decision to go out without socks on a rather cold November evening. He bears it with dignity and – together with two of his bandmates, the brothers Felix and Hugo White – starts into a beautiful acoustic version of „Bag Of Bones“, the last song of The Maccabees’ recent album „Wall Of Arms“. On the way down the stairs to the second location – a corner of a calm street, that has probably never seen as much traffic as there was during the time we shot the video – the three guys make up their mind which song to play now. A cover is the first candidate, then they start „Young Lions“, but finally opt for „Love You Better“. We would have hold out in the cold for all three performances, but their duties on stage already waited for them.
