Julianna Barwick Video + Tour with Sigur Ros

Julianna Barwick has unveiled the sublime video for single "One Half," directed by acclaimed filmmaker Zia Anger. Julianna Barwick also announces tour with Sigur Ros

On the eve of the release of her new album, Nepenthe, Julianna Barwick has unveiled the sublime video for single “One Half,” directed by acclaimed filmmaker Zia Anger (Angel Olsen, Jenny Hval). The video stars Barwick in dual roles as well as a pretty fantastical looking cake.

The video is an exquisite accompaniment to the delicately layered track. In Zia’s own words: “Julianna’s music, to me, evokes such a supernatural mind state – an existence that is without a principal body of laws. Because of this I wanted to make something that was lawless, that indulged the subconscious and also remained unexplainable. I’m fully aware of how tripped out this sounds but what is a music video if not at its core something without rules.”

Barwick will release Nepenthe, her third full-length album, on Dead Oceans on August 20. Recorded in Reykjavík, Iceland, with Alex Somers (Sigur Rós, Jónsi, Jónsi & Alex), Nepenthe is about the sensation of moving forward to find a way through difficult times and retain a feeling of hope.
