Emma Ruth Rundle Shares “In My Afterlife” Video
Singer-songwriter and visual artist Emma Ruth Rundle has released her new video “In My Afterlife” today. Self-directed with John Bradburn, the visual is “an expiration of insanity, a lot of sagazan and influence from Julie Taymor’s circa 2000 film rendition of Titus,” Rundle tells.
“I developed the character, makeup and costume myself, which I made by painting and modifying found articles while I was in the UK. This mask or character is supposed to represent what is left after life ends, wandering the halls of their own existence, reliving little joys, and sufferings. They are a demented and unsettled character.”
Rundle’s headlining North American Spring tour kicks off March 24 in Vancouver and will be the first time she performs her latest renowned albums Engine of Hell and Orpheus Looking Back EP (Sargent House) live stateside. Japanese-American multi-instrumentalist and composer Patrick Shiroishi will be supporting all dates.
Rundles’ Engine of Hell LP, “is For anyone that’s endured trauma and grief”, there’s a beautiful solace in hearing Rundle articulate and humanize that particular type of pain not only with her words, but with her particular mysterious language of melody and timbre. The album captures a moment where a masterful songwriter strips away all flourishes and embellishments in order to make every note and word hit with maximum impact, leaving little to hide behind.
Rundle has collaborated with work with Marriages, Red Sparowes, Chelsea Wolfe and Thou, and more.
