Watch Aldous Harding’s transfixing new “Zoo Eyes” video

Off her new record, Designer.

October 08, 2019

There's something deeply unsettling about each of the videos Aldous Harding has put out for her latest album, Designer, and I can't take my eyes off of them. Earlier this year, she shared enchantingly morbid clips for "The Barrel" and "Fixture Pixture", and today, she's offering one more in the same vein. The "Zoo Eyes" video, which Harding directed alongside Martin Sagadin, was filmed in Ōtautahi, NZ. I can't properly explain it, but the clip involves Harding decked in ruffles and facepaint, trekking across a mountain accompanied by two fantastical looming creatures. Think of it as Jodorowsky meets freak folk. Check the clip out above, and then peep Harding's ongoing tour dates below.
