Jesca Hoop – “The Lost Sky” Video

Following this year’s collaborative album Love Letter For Fire with Iron & Wine’s Sam Beam, Jesca Hoop is continuing her relationship with Sub Pop via a solo LP called Memories Are Now early next year. Blake Mills (Alabama Shakes, Fiona Apple) produced the project, which is teased today with a video for lead single “The Lost Sky.” Hoop’s vocals are frantic and hauntingly anxious, coupled with a simple acoustic arrangement and subtle bassline: “When we said the words ‘I love you’/ I said them ’cause they are true/ Why would you say those words to me if you could not follow through?” The accompanying visual from director Elia Petridis is eerie and not entirely what it seems. Watch and listen below.
