Anna Calvi & David Byrne – “Strange Weather” Video
When we found out that Anna Calvi would release Strange Weather, an EP of cover songs ranging from Suicide to fka Twigs (the latter of which you can already listen to), one of the most exciting details was that it contained a pair of duets with David Byrne. Now Alan Del Rio Ortiz has directed a video for the EP’s title track, the duo’s extremely tense cover of singer-songwriter Keren Ann’s 2011 song. The original already contained a great deal of drama, and Calvi and Byrne only feed into that further. The song swells to a dissonant climax near the end, making it just the right soundtrack to the video’s impressionistic tale of an upset woman wandering through the early morning streets of New York City. Watch it below.
