Weyes Blood "Movies"

Weyes Blood has released a new video for “Movies,” the track is off forthcoming release Titanic Rising. The video was directed by and stars Natalie Mering, and like the album cover, includes footage filmed underwater.

Nathalie Mering on the video;

“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, on April 5th, her debut for Sub Pop Records. The album features the lead single “Everyday,” and the previously released “Andromeda,” along with highlights “Something to Believe,” “Wild Time,” and the aforementioned “Movies.” The cover for Titanic Rising was shot in a bedroom submerged fully underwater by photographer Brett Stanley (zero CGI).
