“Darkest Place,” the new single from Woman’s Hour, is a pretty and synthy indie-pop song, but its lyrics are about the deepest parts of relationship frustration. The song’s new video, directed by Broomberg & Chanarin, takes its visual metaphor to a stark and tough-to watch extreme. The entire video is a black-and-white closeup on a woman’s face as she sings the song and a pair of male hands grab her and, as far as I can tell, try to pry her eyes open. It’s below.
“Darkest Place” b/w “Thunder” is out 10/21 on Luv Luv Luv.
