Chelsea Wolfe – “The Waves Have Come” Video
In February, Chelsea Wolfe teased an hourlong film called Lone with a clip for the song “Feral Love” off her 2013 album Pain Is Beauty. The film is directed by Mark Pellington, who is also responsible for Pearl Jam’s “Jeremy” video and the movies Arlington Road and The Mothman Prophecies. Now, Wolfe has shared another clip from the film featuring the song “The Waves Have Come” and it’s just as beautiful and unsettling as the first. Watch the video and read a statement from Wolfe below.
Statement via V Magazine:
Most of this video is footage from the first time Mark and I shot together — he had built this dark room full of green ivy and it was just me, the dress from the album cover, a few lights, and him. It was the first time I realized what a director really is. Suddenly he was shouting, guiding me with instructions, emotions, telling me to act as if everything I was singing about — disaster and the loss of life and love — that it was all inside of me and at the same time to act as an observer of these things. He cut it together with found footage of families, intense nature and destruction and created this cathartic journey through it all.
The whole movie is available now on USB and will be released digitally in the fall.
