Watch Kim Gordon reveals ‘Earthquake’ video

Kim Gordon reveals ‘Earthquake’ video

The new vid marks the final collaboration with visual artist Loretta Fahrenholz.

Following October’s release of her debut solo album, the legend that is Kim Gordon is sharing the brand new vid of ‘No Home Record’ cut, ‘Earthquake’.

Collaborating with artist Loretta Fahrenholz once again, Kim says of the video: “(LA) is a really voyeuristic city and you’re usually looking at things from a distance. When I was in New York I missed the space. And in LA there’s also that sense of impending doom, whether it’s fire season or actual earthquakes. People adapt and everything becomes normalized. That’s what’s cool about the video. It shows people going about their business. People think of LA as quite a utopian place but really it’s sort of like a mirage.”

Loretta adds: “I filmed most of this footage while shooting (the video for) ‘Sketch Artist’. I used a phone, and not a camera, because it’s a device that’s meditating on the city all the time. I wanted to keep it simple, so it made sense to just sit in a car, pressing the phone against the window while driving around, almost like a dash cam.”
