Marissa Nadler shares video, tours (2016)

With her much-anticipated new album Strangers due for release May 20 on Sacred Bones, Marissa Nadler has unveiled a typically striking black and white video for “All The Colors of the Dark,” one of the album’s many highlights. The video was directed and animated by Nadler herself.

On the video, Nadler says, ““With All the Colors of the Dark I wanted to marry my love for the moving image with the song in a compelling visual that pulsated with the same rhythm. I’ve been inspired by the beautiful phantasmagoric worlds created by Svankmejer and Francesca Woodman, The Brothers Quay, among others. In the video, everyday objects move on their own, representing a lingering presence in my life. In both the song and video that shadowing presence could be interpreted as a memory or as a true apparition, and I’ll leave it up to interpretation. Little by little, throughout the course of the song and video, the leaves and vines are pushed back into the drawers as time slowly creeps by. I rearrange the photos on the wall that have inexplicably moved, and among other things, shut the windows and blinds that keep opening by themselves. With each spin of the trees, seasons pass, and I pace around the house. With the death of the figure at the end of the video, that presence is vaporized.”
Last month Nadler shared the widely praised “Janie In Love,” one of her most texturally rich songs to date. Click HERE to listen.
