The Maccabees perform In The Dark for VEVO using 10 Kinect cameras

By
The Maccabees have performed three songs as part of VEVO's In The Dark series.

The band played 'Go', 'Heave' and 'Grew Up At Midnight' from their latest album Given to the Wild during a 15-minute set which was mapped using 10 depth-sensing Xbox Kinect cameras.

The video sees The Maccabees performing in a live action sequence, before their silhouettes are captured, which helps transform their surroundings into a dark computer animated environment.

"We're just trying to take the live session format and create something a bit more unique than what we usually see out there," said Jamie Clarke, the video shoot co-director.

"New technology can challenge and enhance existing music video formats and also how these formats exist themselves over the new viewing platforms available to audiences."

The Maccabees' Given to the Wild reached number four on the UK chart back in January.
