New PJ Harvey & John Parish Video – “Black Hearted Love”

A few weeks ago, we posted “Black Hearted Love,” with its slinky, powerful PJ vocals and roaring guitar work by John Parish. It’s reminiscent of Sonic Youth … and the ’90s in general. The song’s dark vibe inspired Ms. Harvey’s wardrobe (black gown, black nail polish) in a new Chapman Bros-directed clip that finds her alone in the woods bouncing in one of those inflatable moonwalks for children. In the rain. In super slow motion. “When you call out my name in rapture/ I volunteer my soul for murder.” Also no shoes on the moonwalk, kids.

Thanks Eddie for the tip.

A Woman A Man Walked By is out 3/30 via Island. I once saw PJ open for the band Live in high school. Neither of us are proud of that.
