Kate NV has shared animated visuals for “confessions at the dinner table,” a standout cut from her most recent album, WOW. Directed by NV’s frequent collaborator Vladimir “Vova” Shlokov, the new video charts the journey of a rogue meatball as it wanders across a table, plunges into a sink drain, and stumbles down an infinite staircase along with an endless cascade of utensils and musical instruments.
NV has also released a new video game in which the player races against the clock to scrub as many dishes as possible. “Games are a way to escape reality, and a game in which you wash dishes seemed ridiculous to me,” she told Metal Magazine in an interview published this morning. “Washing dishes actually became a comfort zone where you can accomplish something simple and familiar and have a little bit of control with some immediate results.” Play the game here.
In addition to the clip and the game, NV has revealed four fast-approaching North American tour dates, starting with a show in Richmond, Virginia this Friday, September 8. The gigs will precede her later fall tours of the U.S. and Europe with Angel Deradoorian as Decisive Pink, a post-kraut act recently profiled for The FADER’s Gen F series.
