Watch Weyes Blood's Surreal Video 'Movies'

Wednesday 20th March, 2019 1:49PM

US songwriter Weyes Blood aka Natalie Mering has unveiled ‘Movies’, the third single from her hotly anticipated fourth studio album Titanic Rising. The electronically pulsing, stirring new tune comes accompanied with a self-directed video depicting a cinema audience viewing a figure suspended underwater on-screen, before honing in individual reactions, with each member eventually being compelled to take part in the watery action themselves. Footage of the artist singing her song on a hilltop follows, conveying slightly unsettling Mulholland Drive sensations despite the grandeur. Read the Weyes Blood's commentary on the new clip and dive into 'Movies' below...

"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."

'Titanic Rising' is out Friday 5th April via Sub Pop.
