IMTV (Irish Music Television) Award winning director Kevin McGloughlin has directed and animated the music video for Idiot Songs' Villages of Ether, and done a damn fine job.

Combining after effects and stop motion animation with live action he's created a magically surreal tale of a individual struggling with his identity - signified by his ball-shaped head. Says the artist: "Set in the subconscious, this piece interrogates what it means to recognise a difficulty in oneself. The video endeavours to depict struggles with anxiety and ultimately the elimination of self doubt."

And Kevin adds, "All I can say about the 'making of' is that it took time and patience."
