Video: Shocking Pinks f. Gemma Syme, "St. Louis"

FADER PREMIERE

When Australian visual artist Gemma Syme sings I wonder what they'll put on my grave/ at the end of all my days about halfway through "St. Louis," my heart breaks a little. There's something so existentially sad about trying to picture the world spinning after you're gone, particularly when that bleak thinking is paired with minimal, acoustic wallowing patterned by introspective sound designer Nick Harte bka Shocking Pinks. The song's official video is uneventful but pretty, featuring the glitchy image of a woman hovering and spinning, like a ballerina suspended in time and space, while Japanese lettering lingers inexplicably in the frame. "St. Louis" is off Guilt Mirrors, the New Zealand artist's first official release as Shocking Pinks since 2007. The vinyl is available now on Stars & Letters Records.
