Mike Keneally -"I'm Raining Here, Inside"


Mike Keneally and Andy Partridge's "I'm Raining Here, Inside" is presented in a dreamlike performance by Mike. The slow-motion effect was achieved by shooting the video at a very high frame rate (60fps) as Mike mimed the song at 2 1/2 times its normal speed! (For a look at how it went down in real time, check this out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d8hMaRarr7o .)"I'm Raining Here, Inside" was directed by Nick Conedera and is the first single from the acclaimed 2012 album, "Wing Beat Fantastic: Songs written by Mike Keneally & Andy Partridge." © ℗ 2012 Exowax Recordings, LLC. http://www.keneally.com
