Eleanor Friedberger (of Fiery Furnaces fame) is releasing her new album Rebound (Frenchkiss Records) on May 4th. In anticipation of the upcoming album, she dropped the video for her first single “In Between Stars,” which calls an homage to 80’s dark goth pop.
The Video was shot by Eleanor herself, and she had this to say about it,“With a little moral support and instruction from Kim Gordon: ‘move around, just twirl.’ I turned the camera on myself and hit record.”
In contrast to her 2016 lauded album New View, which Eleanor arranged and recorded with her touring band, Rebound was recorded mostly by Eleanor alone with assistance from producer Clemens Knieper. The resulting album is an entirely new sound for Eleanor, exchanging live instrumentation for programmed drums, a Juno synthesizer, and muted guitars, creating a sonic landscape where influences range from Stereolab and Suicide to Lena Platonos and Yellow Magic Orchestra.
