Weyes Blood (pronounced wize bluhd) breaks through the fourth wall in her gorgeous new video for Movies, a standout from forthcoming new record Titanic Rising. The video was directed by and stars Natalie Mering, and like the album cover, includes footage filmed underwater

Take a watch below…

On 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 will release Titanic Rising, her fourth album and Sub Pop records debut, worldwide on 5th April 2019

Weyes Blood’s previously announced her “True Love is Making a Comeback Tour” in support of Titanic Rising…
