Video: Julia Holter, "Our Sorrows"

The video for "Our Sorrows" finds Julia Holter at a porcelain basin for daily ablutions (because really, we'd rather not imagine her as a mortal being doing things at a regular sink with running water) before a busy day of reprising Harold and the Purple Crayon with a large spool of a magenta cotton ribbon. Instead of drawing her own world, Holter simply embellishes the ordinary one, which is actually a fine metaphor for what it feels like to listen to Ekstasis on the train or walking down a gritty street; it adds a bit or dreamy luster and gauzy softness to everything. The video was directed by Naomi Yang of Galaxie 500/Damon & Naomi. Holter is heading out on tour in the UK with some support dates with Peaking Lights, see dates below.
