White Hinterland Premieres New Video

White Hinterland, also known as Casey Dienel, premiered the new video for “No Devotion,” a track off of her upcoming album Baby, set to be released via Dead Oceans. The song can be found here.

Winter Hinterland is a project that was started by Casey Dienel in 2008 and has released two albums to date, namely Phylactery Factory and Kairos. Baby is set to be released in 2014 and will “address the fear that comes along with breaking out of established rituals, or leaving a comfortable place, and striking out into the unknown.”

Winter Hinterland, who has worked with acclaimed artists such as Sean Carey and Neal Morgan, delivers music that can be best described as “R&B-laced pop” and her upcoming album will be a perfect illustration of the genre.

In the new song “No Devotion” that can be heard above, Dienel is found pondering over the ever-present nature/nurture debate. Asking whether the traits we have are inherited or whether they are learned through experience. The upcoming album is to be reminiscent of such themes as the singer herself claims, “I would say the themes of this record to me are personal agency, strength, growth, determination…And to get those things is usually fucking terrifying and comes with casualties and loss.”

Along with the release of her new song, Hinterland also will be kicking off her North American tour after finishing up touring in the UK this month. Dates for the upcoming live dates can be found below.
