Julia Holter will release a new 12” that features Ekstatis cuts “Goddess Eyes I” and “Goddess Eyes II” as well as a couple of remixes. Today, Holter put out the video for the latter, a strange, metaphor-heavy clip. The director, Yelena Zhelezov, explains:
The video for Julia Holter’s “Goddess Eyes II” is inspired by the Latin phrase “deus ex machina”. In literature, deus ex machina is a plot device for seemingly unresolvable dramaturgical situations. The unexpected and dramatic measure was employed by many Greek tragedians. It is in tribute to Euripides and the literary spirit of the song that the video was directed.

The Goddess Eyes 12” is out 12/10 on Domino.
