Divorcee – “Absence And Presents” Video (Stereogum Premiere)
Divorcee, a new project from Yoni Wolf and Anna Stewart, will release their debut EP next month. Wolf works as the producer in this setting, and is almost entirely silent, vocally speaking, with good reason. In addition to being the music-making side of Divorcee, he is also the ex-boyfriend of Stewart, and that relationship served as the lyrical foundation for many WHY? songs. Here, Wolf provides a sonic backdrop, while Stewart writes songs examining the couple’s relationship from her own perspective. Below you can watch the video for the single “Absence And Presents,” which finds Stewart singing in front of grainy home movies of the pair.
