Weyes Blood has shared a video for track ‘Movies’.
The track is taken from forthcoming album ‘Titanic Rising’, the follow-up to 2016’s ‘Front Row Seat To Earth’, and set for release on 5th April.
Of the video she says: “We are enamored with Movies. Our generation is the most cinematically saturated of all time. Videotapes, DVD’s, streaming… Spielberg…all of it has thrust us into an endless loop of consumption. They provide formative experiences as children, standing larger than life before our fragile adolescent minds. I wanted to take a look into the emotionally manipulative powers of movies - how have movies succeeded in telling the myths of our time? How have they failed (miserably)? What is the consequent effect on a society of beings looking for themselves in the myths on the screen? It’s safe to say that they have failed us, but I can’t help it…I love Movies.”
Weyes Blood plays a handful of UK live dates next month.
