Video: Nathaniel Rateliff “All or Nothing”

‘All or Nothing’ is the visually mesmerising new video from Nathaniel Rateliff.  His melodic voice is at its most engaging, buoyed by a gentle groove.  The song is from the critically-acclaimed ‘And It’s Still Alright’, which was Rateliff’s first solo album in seven years.  It’s introspective, reflective, cleverly-written and beautifully performed: all that you’d want from one of the finest exponents of this thing we call Americana. 

The video was directed by Doug Spencer, who says of the project: “When I first heard ‘All Or Nothing,’ I was seeing images of the circus going from town to town with Nathaniel as the ringleader. From there we built a dream-like world populated by performers, moving landscapes and a little magic using my smoke techniques, projections and animations. A world within a song and a nice escape for the moment.”  A nice escape, indeed.
